Norway's prime minister says the best place to find out what people are thinking is in a taxi. So Jens Stoltenberg disguised himself as a taxi driver one day and transported passengers around Oslo.

Footage from the prime-minister-as-taxi-driver scheme in June was posted Sunday on a daily newspaper's web site and the prime minister's Facebook page.

The stunt, planned by an advertising agency as part of Stoltenberg's re-election campaign, was taped with hidden cameras to catch Norwegians' views on politics and their reactions when they realized their driver was their prime minister.

The hidden cameras also caught a confession from the prime minister - he has not driven a car in eight years. One passenger was not impressed with Stoltenberg's driving skills, saying "this driving is not exactly the best I have seen."

Stoltenberg's Labour party is trailing in the polls against the opposition Conservatives for the September election.
