This just made my day: Moments before a scheduled on-air interview last week, a harried producer ran to the BBC's reception area to grab the interviewee and whisk him into the studio. Problem was, they didn't grab the expert -- they grabbed his cab driver
, who happens to have a limited command of English. As the Daily Mail reports
Baffled, but compliant, the driver was fitted with a microphone and allowed himself to be marched in to the studio. Cameras rolled, and he was quizzed live on air by consumer affairs correspondent Karen Bowerman - who missed the cabbie's panic-stricken expression when he realised he was being interviewed.Watch the video
-- it's hilarious. What I love -- besides the way this winsome chap gamely tries to play along -- is that, compared to other talking heads on television, he's not all that bad
! I mean, who cares if he doesn't make any sense? I think he should consider a second career as a television commentator on a variety of subjects.
