Sorry Ma’am this taxi is not for hire

I thought it was funny – I ran to work and stopped at a light this morning at Queen and Sherbourne. They we’re filming some movie, or TV episode and there was a lineup of taxis, painted typically to look like New York cabs, and had NY City Cab Co on the side. A lady walked up and peeked inside,  tugged on the handle and since no driver was inside, proceeded to the next one whereupon a crew dude ran over to her and said that they were being used for filming. She looked have embarrassed and half angry and strolled back to the main intersection. Of course, there were no real cabs in sight. Poor lass.
