OSLO, NORWAY (FOX NEWS) – Norway’s Prime Minister plays a trick on Norwegian citizens.  In an unusual campaign stunt, Jens Stoltenberg got behind the wheel of a taxi cab.

He believes people in taxis really say what they mean and that it’s important to listen to other’s opinions.

People who got in the cab couldn’t help but laugh after it took some time to realize it was Stoltenberg driving.

A Labour party spokeswoman says an advertising firm helped set up the stunt.

Norway’s parliamentary election is set for September ninth.
