Grotty UK Smut 'Fake Taxi' Responds To Their Hometown's Criticism Of The Series
By now you've probably a watched an episode or two of 'Fake Taxi'. For some reason it's become immensely popular, racking up five million views on PornHub.
The videos themselves are surrounded in mystery. Firstly, it's British porn, so it's a miracle something so inferior to its American elder can have any sort of success at all. But I guess UK smut is like a drunken kebab: Indicative of something more exotic, shamefully enjoyable, and it makes you feel a bit gross when it's over.
Secondly, Fake Taxi appears to be filmed in the secluded backlots of any generic British town, and yet no one knew the actual location until last week. The pixelated drivers gave no clue, and cameras in the cab only seemed to reveal various empty, unknown car parks in the background.
However, the location where up to 128 of the videos were filmed was discovered fairly recently.
Sutton, the charming London borough blending into the leafy avenues of Surrey, is where taxi drivers accept illicit forms of payment for the service offered. They receive it in shopping centre multistory car parks, and near council offices in the town, the Sutton Guardian reports.
Not wanting their town to become known for haggard porn 'stars' fucking in Hackney carriages, local Councillors complained.
"It is absolutely disgraceful that this is happening in public, not to mention right on my doorstep. It is very worrying that it is going on right under our noses in broad daylight where anyone could walk by and be subject to this indecency," Councillor Trish Fivey told the Daily Star.
The porn company obviously received a lot of criticism following their location's reveal, and they've since responded.
Time to move to another town, eh? But where? Could they move to neighbouring Surrey, where more affluent residents might vomit at the very thought of FT? Perhaps they could bring it to the countryside, or the Sqaure Mile?
Who knows? You could be walking to work one morning in your town and see a taxi's suspension being tested.
Just be wary of inadvertently flagging it down.
