Macworld reports

"BBC News 24 has mistakenly interviewed a cab driver about the outcome of the Apple Computer versus Apple Corp court case.

A confused London cabbie - yet to be identified - was lead into the studio, miced up, sat down, and interviewed live on air by unsuspecting BBC consumer affairs correspondent Karen Bowerman.

It would appear that the cabbie was there to collect online expert Guy Kewney, who was supposed to be being interviewed.

Rather than admit the mistake, in good spirits the cabbie played along, although his answers were far from expert, suggesting for example that we will soon see: "A lot of people downloading the internet and the website and everything they want."

Wasn't a cabbie though, it turns out. He was Guy Goma, and was there for a job interview. ;)

That's just hilarious.. The guys face at the start as he decides to just go along with it..

Are we sure it's not a spoof? The kinda thing that's almost too good to be true! And the guy afterward saying "..first of all it comes as something of a shock.."- especially if the most high profile thing you planned to do today was attend a job interview!!


Wonder if he got the job in the end... ?

No, it's not a spoof, it was broadcast live on News 24. And the BBC did a write up. Priceless.

I can't believe he actually went along with it, though. 10 out of 10 for effort! (And comedy value...)
