I think he was someone looking for a job not a cabbie as first thought...

The real story is that the BBC was supposed to interview Guy Kewnie, editor of Newswireless.net about the Apple Corps Vs Apple Computer decision and that a Job Applicant(not a cabbie as first thought) who's name was also Guy and was from the Congo who was there to apply for a high level IT job was pushed onto the set and interview by mistake. The title "Cabbie mistaken for IT expert" is completely wrong as he is an it expert, just not one who knows about the Apple Vs Apple Case or can speak english well.

This article explains a bit more about the background to this misunderstanding: http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/entertainment/4774429.stm It's probably a good idea to read this article *before* you watch the video, because it somehow makes it seem much funnier :)

The funny thing is -not- the video, but the fact that the man was dragged into the studio by mistake, as ecplained earlier.

You can see the point where they tell her its not the right guy. She has to cut away and gets real nervous and starts stuttering.
