    That's funny. Perhaps they should make a reality TV out of it... :p

    I love the look of horror on his face when she says his name. But he still answers the questions regardless. Those cabbies enjoy a chinwag don't they.

    Well that has really reassured me as to the quality of the BBC's rolling news. I understand that rolling news is difficult, but they really do clutch at straws sometimes. I watch News 24 quite often and I'm sure that if I'd seen this live I'd have absolutely wet myself :D

    That look of horror is the funniest thing I have seen in a long time. I still can't stop laughing about it.

    Outstanding! The best evidence yet that you don't need brains to work in TV.

    I love that clip so much. That guy deserves to never work again for giving the internet so much joy. I'd love to know his thought process from that look on his face to the second he decides to not say anything and just wing it.

    Absolutely wonderful (and beautiful).

    What I love is how this wonder of just "being where we are" emerges through him. We can all identify with his "oh crap!" moment, but we can equally identify with his wonder at a world that has carried him to the ever familiar strangeness of "where I am."

    And like all of us, somewhat confused and embarassed, he looks around, gathers himself and starts answering the questions before him ...

    OK. You owe me a new keyboard, since you've now made me spew coffee all over my current one. Oh, my GOD, that was hillarious! That expression on his face when he is introduced was so painfully funny.

    I had a hard time with his accent, but it seemed he did a somewhat OK job answering the questions, but then I read the transcript of the interview, and barely anything he said made any since at all. That was friggin awesome!

    Brilliant. Let's have more of this. Instead of interviewing 'experts' on the matters of the day let's just pick people at random.
