VADIRAJ HOMBAL forwards a hilarious YouTube video of a BBC studio discussion in which presenter Karen Bowerman interviews a taxi driver mistaking him to be a computer expert. The man who was supposed to appear for the interview was Guy Kewney, a white, bearded IT journalist. In his place appeared a black, clean shaven man with a French accent.
The taxi driver at first expresses surprise when he is announced on air as the expert, but then settles down to answer the questions without batting an eyelid. The man, it turns out, had been waiting for his fare in the reception of Television Centre, and found himself being ushered into a studio and fitted with a microphone after raising his hand when a producer called out the name Guy Kewney.
