Best Cabbie Ever

Last Monday, a BBC newshow covering the most recent Apple / Beatles court case introduced a man as Guy Kewney, editor of, as a commentator on the case.  Little did the anchor know, the man she was interviewing was actually Mr. Kewney’s cab driver, whom a rushed staffer plucked from the lobby.  The so-far unidentified driver gamely bluffed his way through the interview.  Awesome.

    That’s absolutely amazing. He can successfully bs in a language he has difficulty speaking.

    Herehere, everyone!  That look on his face that he transfers so breathlessly into “Good morning.” is absolutely classic.  I was also impressed at his BS.  He just sounded like some foreign tech guy that could get away with somewhat vague answers by not knowing the English language well.

    That’s why London cabbies are the best in the world. I’m pretty sure that part of “The Knowledge” (the test you have to take before they let you drive a black cab in London where you have to memorise EVERY street in London – to learn it takes about two years minimum) is improvising technical comentators on TV. All in a days work. Nice one fella.

    Oops.  Looks like the guy wasn’t a cabbie after all, but a job applicant at the BBC.
