Thats not quite correct. He was actually there for a job interview for a data cleansing job in the IT department.

Here is the official link to the BBC article

The link you provided seems a bit slow. You may want to see the video here if you can't get through to CollegeHumour site:

video.google.com/videoplay?doc ...

If you listen to the first reply he gives, he says that " I am very surprised. When I came here, they told me something else." Which basically refers to him think originally that he was being whisked away for his interview.

Poor guy. I hope he got his job in the end.

In german Televison they explained that after his success as false expert he has plans to go into Showbusiness.

I wish him all the best and think that he has accted very spontaneously after the first shock.

His facial expressions are priceless... it makes me giggle every time. He goes from surprised to the expression you get when you are getting away with something.

Thanks Utills. I based the "cab driver" info on a Reuters article but apparently they were wrong.

I can't stop watching that video..... you can tell the guy is nervous! he is breathing very hard, but he is keeping a calm (but shaky) voice.... I'm impressed!

The early reports said "cab driver", and I couldn't help thinking that cab drivers dress more smartly than they used to!

IIRC, the Jonathan Ross show on Friday night opened up with this guy walking through the doors instead of Wossy himself.
