Now, something a little less ordinary.......

Aloha! We don't get BBC cock-ups everyday but we certainly got one 3 days ago where BBC News 24 were supposed to interview a technology expert about the legal battle between the Beatles' Apple Corps and Apple Computer. Instead, they interviewed his cab driver (probably amidst all the haste) who looked nothing like him! First of all he was black, didn't know anything about the story and had a thick french accent. Poor guy - watch the clip below. I found him really cute, I bet he'll get enough babes now after his 60 seconds of fame! How stupid were they? Plus look at his first expression like "Ye! Mo gbe!"vocab and then the reporter lady stuttering and uhm-ing towards the end, probably when the studio peeps realised their mistake! What if it was a Naija cab driver in London? Maybe he'd have started talking about politics or something heheh. More of the cabbie story here and if you want to know more about the court battle between Apple and Apple - click here.

OK I commented before watching it. But the first minute is PRICELESS. He had the most "WTF" look ever:)

He wasn't his driver now... they just thought he was. i think he was there for a job interview or something. but he had the same first name as the person they were supposed to be interviewing... Wand here :o)

Mona said...

Hey Wand, yea some girl at work said that to me first but all the stories I've been reading said he was a cab driver. Gosh isn't it funny how they suddenly said he was a cab driver...crazy ppl, the guy is a graduate you know! I'm pissed now.
