the look on the guy's face when he gets introduced as that expert is priceless!

When I saw this on Newswatch on Saturday morning, I was half asleep before getting ready for work, so didn't follow it too muc. They also suggest he was there to be interviewed for something else. When I heard about this Taxi Driver interview on TWiT yesterday, it took until they mentioned Apple that it sank in.

I think the newsreader, (forget her name even though I watch a lot of news), was being told through her earpiece what happened though. She seems to stutter a lot, probably thinking "How the hell do I get through the rest of this interview?"

I tried screen grabs for his expression too, but can't nail the timing on it. If I try again later and get it better, I'll post.

Here's the video of his facial expressions. I don't know if screenshots can really do him justice.

Cheers Eagon!

This screen cap is definately the best. If I had avatar priveleges, then I'd make it my avatar...

I still can't believe he didn't manage to say something before they got him in the studio doing all that!!
