This is the funniest thing I've seen all week. Apparently the BBC thought they were interviewing a technology editor but got his cabbie instead.

The look on the cabbie's face when he realizes he's on TV and his attempt to perform the interview about the Apple Music / Apple Computer lawsuit makes this hall of fame material.

Here's the person they were supposed to interview's blog entry on it (http://www.newswireless.net/index.cfm/article/2701).

Or just check out the video (http://img.dailymail.co.uk/video/cabbie.wmv).

edit: Ok apparently he isn't a cab driver, he's actually someone who was at the BBC for a job interview in the IT department. He has the same first name as the tech editor, so when they called him for the interview there was the mixup.
