bbc mistakes taxi driver as tech expert

an awesomely hilarious clip that is starting to make the rounds with a BBC screwup where they mistook a taxi driver as a tech expert and proceeded to ask him about the case between apple computers and apple corp.

story from the times and the sunday mail. and of course on blogs.
KB: It does really seem the way the music industry's progressing now that people want to go onto the website and download music.

Taxi driver: Exactly you can go everywhere on the cyber cafe and you can take, you can go easy. It is going to be an easy way for everyone to get something to the internet

[UPDATE: apparently the guy's not a taxi driver but an IT guy from Congo who's applying for a job at BBC. Not really the way to impress your employer, is it?]
