The Alessio Rastani weirdness comes to a fitting end with the Next Media Animation treatment:
Is the best part when the BBC anchors’ heads explode? Or when it turns out Rastani is a noodling hippie?
In case you missed the end of the Rastani drama, the Telegraph dug deeper and figured out the real story. Rastani is not an authorized trader, his business is in the red, and he totally admits it. “I’m an attention seeker,” he told the Telegraph. “That is the main reason I speak. That is the reason I agreed to go on the BBC. Trading is a like a hobby. It is not a business. I am a talker.”
How the BBC found this guy and why they booked him to an interview remains a mystery.
