If you haven't seen him it's probably because he's not famous. Now, apparently, he is. And he's also quintessentially funny, in an Asturian way.

His name is Henry Felgueroso, although he goes by the name of 'Henry Driver' because he drives a taxi around Xixon to supplement his income as a retiree. The video on youtube is part of the campaign by Izquierda Xunida-Los Verdes-Bloque por Asturies (United Left, a multiparty coalition) for the March 9, 2008, election. It starts out in Salinas beach (your turf, Art) and ends up in Sta Maria del Mar, if I'm not wrong.

Featured artists and politicos:

Henry Driver
Laura Gonzalez (IX candidate to the Senate in Madrid)
Gaspar Llamazares (the Asturian leader of United Left in Spain)

Everybody in Asturias know Henry Felgueroso or The recycled Taxi Driver. He has even created a new expression ''Boborolo'. This can only be translated as sort of silly boy

The link shows his presentation to the media. The short documentary explains in just two minutes the history of his life. The documentary was the winner of the Notodofilmfest film festival

Here you have a video of Henry promoting Asturias

He is very funny but as Is says in an Asturian way, some of Spanish and Central American friends can't understand the meaning of what he says
