Taxi driver, mistaken for Apple expert, interviewed on live TV
In the UK, people joke that London taxi drivers have an opinion on everything.
Well here’s the proof, in one of the funniest video clips I’ve seen in years.
After a bizarre case of mistaken identity, a cabbie is interviewed on live television and asked for his thoughts on the future of internet downloading. This is a still from the video.
WARNING this video is hilarious, but before we show you the video, we have to give you a bit of background.
The taxi driver was supposed to collect net expert, Guy Kewney, who was due to give an interview on English television discussing the High Court verdict in the case of Apple Computers vs. Apple Corp (iTunes vs. The Beatles). While the cabbie was waiting to collect his fare, an assistant from the BBC called out the name “Guy Kewney”. Recognising the name of his passenger, the taxi driver raised his hand, and was immediately escorted to the studio where he was made up, fitted with a microphone before he had a chance to explain.
The first question put to the bewildered cabbie on live television; “Were you surprised by this verdict today?”
Watch him rise to the occasion…
