It may look like a psychedelic version of a “Pimp My Ride” mobile…but it’s not! It’s none other than Asif Hussain Shah’s taxi! WHO/WHAT? A Pakistani cab driver turned author. Just Google him and see for yourself…I sure as heck did! Oh, and if that’s not enough, you can also YouTube him and watch the 5 minute documentary [with “Memories” from “Cats” playing in the background] about his book,“For Hire”; a narration of his personal experiences with thousands of customers during his last 15 years of cab driving in Islamabad.
- One of the most original (if not best) Google ad integration I’ve ever seen.
- No need to be high on ‘shrooms’ to fully experience this trip!
- If I ever need a cab in Islamabad, he’ll be the first person I call.
- Goes to show what a bit of dedication and hard work can lead to.
- Google better be sponsoring his book and LIFE!
- Very inspiring – way to go Asif!
