“Busy tonight mate?”
“Are you working right through?”
Are you tired of the same old taxi conversations?
If so, you had better hope your next taxi ride is with Dundee driver Jimmy Smart.
He’s found a much more enjoyable way to pass the time serenading his passengers with a collection of Big Band hits.
This YouTube recording of him belting out a rendition of You Make Me Feel So Young that even Ol’ Blues Eyes himself would have been proud of was posted on Saturday and has already been viewed hundreds of times.
It was recorded by passenger June Pickett, who said: “This man must make a lot of people happy. He has a beautiful disposition.UPDATE: Watch what happened when The Courier went for a drive with ‘Jimmy Bubl’“Good luck Jimmy and thank you!”
The video is getting a great reaction from people hearing Jimmy sing for the first time, and from those who say they’ve also been treated to his impromptu performances on nights out in Dundee.
Linda Stewart-Pourchez posted: “Absolutely brilliant….lovely man, great voice!”
And Nikki Fleming said: “He’s a great guy! I remember being in his taxi and he sang a Michael Buble song.”
David Carrie added: “He’s in the wrong job!”, while Kathy Alexander suggested he should try going on the X Factor.
