This has got to be one of the funniest clips ever on television. But it also shows the silliness of 24-hour news, and the constant need to get someone from the commentariat to pass judgement on any recent judgement, including, say, a judge's ruling on the price of bread in the market. The clip comes from the day of the Apple Corps (Beatles publishers) v. Apple Computer, when an unsuspecting francophone taxi driver is thrust in front of the live cameras to say if he was "surprised" by the verdict. Of course he was surprised, he was there to pick someone up, not talk to millions of viewers. Video courtesy of the Sun.
