Imagine you find yourself in a hurry and you decide to hop in a cab. You then get asked about direction by Barack Obama who just happens to be your cab driver. How would you react?
This is exactly what happened to many Norwegian citizens in Oslo last summer. It was just for a day when the Norwegian prime minister Jens Stoltenberg decided to go undercover as a cab driver in the center of the capital city Oslo. His peculiar tactic was intended to give him new insights of what people thought about his politics. It was also a part of a publicity campaign due to the upcoming elections in September.
Most of the unsuspecting passengers were really quick at realizing who their driver was. Stoltenberg did confirm his identity a few times leaving the passengers wondering whether he had quit his government job and taken up cab driving instead.
