Ok! So this is a bit of a more bizarre WANK, and one that very few people will be able to experience themselves if they come to Korea. We didn’t even know about it until Daily Planet contacted us like “hay we wanna make a video with you about this in Korea” and we were like “THIS EXISTS IN KOREA?!”

So, yes, this taxi driver has pimped his ride in a very bizarre manner. He put a noraebang in it. He put in massage chairs. He put in a fountain with a garden. And you wouldn’t even be able to tell from looking at the outside of his taxi, because it looks like just any old taxi. I’m sure that if he had a more conspicuous taxi people would be like “I ain’t gotta go anywhere but I’ll sure as hell get in the taxi for…umm, to go up the street!”

It was a lovely experience. Taxi rides are usually very stressful for us. They drive like freaking maniacs a lot of the time. We’re always like “why is our car moving so much faster than all the other cars?” with rare exception. This taxi ride, though, was totally smooth and relaxing. No rush, no fuss, no muss, just lovely, smooth driving with a sweet old man singing us songs we don’t understand. That happened once to us a while ago, back when we did that shoot with Groove Magazine. No, there wasn’t a garden, but a sweet old man sang traditional Korean music in notes a bit louder than whispers. He didn’t sing for us. He didn’t sing to us. He sang for himself, beautifully, and we were lucky to be in the car with him. I don’t remember much more about it because we dozed off so freaking hardcore, but I remember waking up when we got to the location and not wanting to get out of the car. This Garden Taxi had more razzle dazzle than that taxi, which was completely unadorned, but the feeling of having the most relaxing and enjoyable taxi ride of our lives was definitely there, compared to the bad taxis we usually get.

Ok, now that story time’s over, there’s going to be Asia Tech Week on Daily Planet on the Discovery Channel Canada. It’s going to air from Monday to Friday as of next week. It should run anywhere between 4 and 7 PM, depending on your city and time zone. Point is, we’re on TV yo! We, ourselves, won’t be able to see the program, but if you do happen to watch it on TV let us know! Send us picture or something or TIVO it or pull out your iPhones and show it to us! We don’t have access to Canadian TV!

I think it might also be on the Daily Planet Website afterwards, for those of you non-Canadian Nasties. We’re going to be asleep when it airs – Canadian evenings are Korean mornings for us, and we don’t wake up till the PM, so we won’t know till afterwards. We’ll check in Tuesday morning our time to see if it’s up.

Side note: thanks to the Discovery Channel team for being so professional. Whenever we shoot things with TV shows, they’re usually like “we’d like to film for an hour” then film for gortdamned three, and then ask for more, regardless of if we have a schedule to keep or not. Daily Planet here was in and out exactly when they said they’d be, and – for people like us who don’t have free time to do anything – we really appreciate it. Really. Thanks guise!

Also, we’ve got a few extra scenes just if you’re curious :D

  1. Just saw you guys on tv!! Just caught a little glimpse so i couldn’t take a picture!! TT^TT

  2. http://www.discovery.ca/dp/videos/

    under may 13th, theres a video with a description starting “This taxi can be a peaceful escape to…”, not very long, i think eyks version and editing was a lot more interesting but check it out before its gone!

    cant watch it out of canada though, i used a proxy :)

  3. Martina, are you going to eventually dye your whole hair pink? It would be great!

  4. http://www.discovery.ca/Showpage.aspx?sid=13287

    The EYK segment is the absolute last one of the hour. I enjoyed the whole show, but would have liked to have know that.

  5. Saw you guys on tv, just as promised~~

  6. How did you pronounce Canada at around the :42 mark???

  7. I was fangirling when the taxi cab driver was doing noraebang.

  8. kpopfan123

    Cool!

    ♥♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

  9. so is this like a garden taxi company? or is it like a new taxi trend? or just that taxi driver that happens to have a very unusual way of operation?

  10. Martina speaking in Korean is super cute. I want more of that. ^^

  11. I immensely enjoyed this! That taxi driver is amazing. He was so cute!!! ^^

  12. Martina, your pants are fantastic (baby)!!

  13. Martina, can I just say it looks like you have lost quite a bit of weight! You look so good and soo skinny!!! :D

  14. That taxi driver is so adorable!!!! He also has a pretty good singing voice.

  15. YES! Something that I could actually watch! I hope I don’t miss it xD

  16. I want to ride that taxi!

  17. So jelli jelli! Now I want a massage…

  18. >.> simon’s manly chest hair… lol
    what are the rates for the garden taxi and a regular taxi?

  19. So how much did all of that cost?

  20. Awwww I wanna ride in the garden taxi!

  21. PunkyPrincess92

    aww his taxi reminds me of Pimp My Ride!!!!
    bwahahahahahhahahahahaha i just freakin’ cracked up laughing when the taxi driver brought out the headset!!!
    man that guy is cool!!!

  22. Wow,it looks reaaally cool! I’m curious,can a normal seoul citizen order that kind of taxi too?
    Love you guise~♥

  23. Oh God, that was sooo cool!!! Can’t wait to watch it online! :D
    But, S&M, you forgot to do Spudgy’s voice while receiving massage! ㅜㅜ hahahahah

  24. I’ll watch it and take a ton of photos xDDD

  25. Can’t wait to watch that Daily Planet episode! Congratulations guise!!!! :3

    Martina, I loved your earrings while you two were riding in the cab. So jelly of your style. Love it!

  26. “This Garden Taxi had more razzle dazzle than that taxi” I haven’t heard the term ‘razzle dazzle’ in forever and it’s probably the best term to describe the taxi too. Singing birds in a taxi? Why not? Also I love the S&M taxi rendition of Fantastic Baby.

    Kudos to him for taking what is usually a pretty dismal job and doing what he could to make it as awesome and fun as possible. You can tell anyone who even sat and thought, “You know what would be fun, putting massage chairs in my taxi,” and then thought, “You know what would be fun, putting noraebang in my taxi,” and then thought, “You know what would be fun, decorating my cab to look like a garden, complete with birds,” is a delightful person.

  28. i love this taxi if i go to Korea and find these taxis i would beg them to sell me their taxi and just use it for having a mobile karaoke garden taxi.. i probably don’t have to leave it because of the massage chairs. :D AMAZING

  29. If there was a minibar, it would never leave. ;)

  30. Wow I have been fans of you guys for what seems like forever and I have never had anything negitive to say before, but your “side note” blind sided me! It is an honor to be asked to be on a TV show like this , to say you have no free time to do anything and to be complaining that other TV filming has gone overtime? I have always respected the fact that you guys did not let you celebrity status go to your heads. OW…what has happened guys??????????

    • They simply meant that they needed to go film their other videos for us Nasties, they weren’t inferring that “oh we are just so popular and busy being famous”

    • I think the problem is that you simply didn’t understand their side note. They were praising Daily Planet for being professionals and keeping to a schedule, unlike other TV shows who rudely expect Simon and Martina to entertain them for hours past what they said they’d need and thus messing up Simon & Martina’s schedule.

    • Yes this issue isn’t the other shows needing 3 hours to film, its saying 1 hour and then expecting an extra 2 or 3 hours when they know S&M have other things they need to do. If the shows just said 3 hours ahead of time then S&M would have happily worked that into their schedule. Its not that S&M won’t take the time out its that the shows make a schedule and then break it going way over time without any consideration compared to Daily Planet which did not.

  31. Aww~~~~~ I’m jellly~~~~

  32. Great video as always !!!! would love to know what camera were you using ?

  33. haha what an awesome Ajjushi! he looks so familiar though? like i’ve seen him somewhere before… now it’s gonna bug me. don’t u just hate that

  34. Now that’s a man who loves what he’s doing. Great job ajusshi!! Wish I could also ride that taxi

  35. Can’t wait to see you guise on French TV! Which channel will it be?

  36. Instead of AY GURL CAN I BUY YOU A DRANK! It will be AY GURL CAN I GIVE YOU A RIDE!

  37. i couldnt help but notice the way martina puts on the seatbelt. that’s exactly how i put on seatbelts too LOL

  38. Woah that is a really awesome taxi! I would love to take a ride in it!

  39. *watches wank* ^.^ *immediately searches and dvr’s all episodes of daily planet this coming week* MUST NOT MISS IT!!! @o@

  40. KATHyphenTUN

    I am definitely watching out for you guise!! thats so awesome! I love daily planet!!! <3

  41. How do you get in contact with this taxi driver?

  42. this was definitely worth missing Sailor Moon for! ^_^

  43. “gortdamned” Am SO adding that to my vocabulary!

    OMG songbird back up FTW!!! Seriously, that kind of setup would totally fly over here! :D How awesome and creative is that taxi (and driver)?!

    AAAAY GURL, THIS TAXI IZ AWEZOME!

  44. Super taxi in korea!!!! makes me want to go there even more now!

  45. why no pictures ? :(

  46. OMG!!! That taxi is so freaking amazing in so many ways >__< I feel the need to ride it xD

    Congrats, it is so cool they discovery contacted you guise :D

  47. LOL I love the bloopers!!!
    “This is a metaphor for the human spirit because on the outside you can’t tell how beautiful people are on the inside.”
    That was beautiful Simon…. Just beautiful…….

  48. I will ride that taxi one day T-T

  49. lool! u guys were acting so normal, like regular human beings. LOOL! im guessing that the TV effect

  50. How much fun is that? The best adventures come from saying “uh, OK”.

  51. So the only thing missing was a grass scented air freshener? Epic taxi.

  52. He’s going to have a flock of Nasties stalking him. Might have to make an ongoing list for any Nasties that visit Korea and manage to ride in that taxi. The Nasty crew’s official taxi would probably have cat backup singers instead of birds, a root beer fountain, kpop marshmallow stickers on the ceiling, and a T.O.P bobblehead on the dashboard. Boomshakalaka.

  53. Ok this is by far the best taxi EVER and I mean better than the one that takes people and asks people questions before they arrive at the destination(Forgot the name). You “guise” are so lucky!

  54. or was it another guy? :O I think it’s this guy.

  55. IU rode this taxi before :D

  56. Wow!! That’s one AMAZING taxi!!!

  57. thisisjustforfunval

    What a wonderfully sweet old man! He gave you five star serve and then knocked up a notch by singing to you guys!

  58. I think I saw this taxi on a variety show recently… I want to say it was Daddy Where are you Going? But maybe I’m just crazy

  59. Starsania

    That’s amazing! I don’t have much taxi experience at all but that looks like a super sweet ride!

  60. Holy crap on a cracker ! BEST.CAB.EVAAAR.
    That moment when I realized that I’m not in Korea even though almost everything I watch and listen to is korean .. T.T

  61. Actually someone should like record the episode and then send it to you guys on a DVD or online or something. XD

  62. Massage seats, grass and birdies, a fountain AND noraebang?!! GAH!! Where have you been all my life taxi man!!!

  63. This looks like so much fun! Props to the amazing taxi cab driver’s singing skills :)

  64. That is one pimped up taxi!

  65. Gahh I live in Canada but I don’t own a TV =’(

  66. That looked so incredibly relaxing. Not to mention I started tearing up a bit when the taxi driver started singing because he was so cute and reminded me of my grandfather (not that the taxi driver was as old as my grandfather by any means). What a great time.

  67. *gasp* Is that new EYK shirts I see you sporting? I love the font and colours!

  68. Awesome! I wish I could leave N. America to do cool things and blah T^T

  69. waaaa soo cool! I will definitely watch you guys on daily planet when it airs!!
