What’s All The Hype About? HBO Did it First.

After scrolling through articles in the WordPress community, I came across “From Blog, to Book to TV Show” written by Cheri Lucas Rowlands.

I guess it’s about the Diary of an Uber driver, one man’s journey to fame after giving someone a lyft while driving for Uber.

The article talks about this man’s experience (I don’t know his name) with a rider who opened up to him during the ride.  The next thing you know, he became famous from discussing his experiences as a driver.

Of course, I wanted to comment, but conveniently, the comment section was closed.  So, I’ll comment on my blog, Table Seven, where real discussions take place.

When I was in high school around 1996 or 1997, HBO aired a show called Taxi Cab Confessions.

It was about riders opening up and discussing all their personal business with different taxi drivers in New York City.  The show was awesome and a huge success, in my opinion at least.

Straight up, this guy came up with nothing new.  Congratulations man, but Taxi Cab Confessions did it first.

Have a good night originals.
