Mr. Robot educated on the etiquette of Egyptian cab drivers
Whether in New York or in your own delusionary world, you cannot escape the wrath Egyptian taxi drivers. Sam Esmail, the Egyptian-American creator of the hit TV show Mr. Robot, decided to bring a little taste of home with him in this scene (runtime: 3:27) in which Elliot, played by Emmy-winning Egyptian-American Rami Malek, has to suffer the abuses typical of dealing with Egyptian cab drivers. The driver, frustrated as ever that he has to work, doesn’t miss an opportunity to yell at Elliot, who is mid-psychotic breakdown, proving that you can take the cab driver out of Cairo, but you can’t take the Cairo out of the cab driver.
