TIL before any details of Pixar’s ‘Soul’ were public, a Black chauffeur told Kemp Powers (the film’s co-writer & co-director) that he knew Pixar was making a Black movie because he had never driven so many Black people to Pixar before.

>POWERS: I know. It was so funny because, you know, Pixar uses a car service up in Emeryville to pick people up from the airport. And… >SAGAL: Right, yeah. >POWERS: …Shortly after we got going in production in “Soul,” the car – because, you know, it’s – Emeryville’s right next to Oakland. So a lot of the car service drivers are Black men. And I remember once I was in one of the car services. And the guy – like, they don’t usually say much. But the guy looked around. And he’s like, level with me, brother. Y’all are making a Black movie, aren’t you? I was like – what… >(LAUGHTER) >POWERS: I was like – I said, why would you say that? He’s like, because – he’s like, I picked up Angela Bassett, Jamie Foxx, Donnell Rawlings. He’s like, I ain’t never picked up this many Black people and brought them to Pixar. So you guys know. >(LAUGHTER) >POWERS: I – tell me. I was like, oh, I can’t say what we’re working on. He’s like – well, what is your job? I’m like, I’m the writer. He’s like, man, you know y’all doing a Black movie. You need to stop. >(LAUGHTER) >POWERS: So I was, like, being interrogated by the car service drivers because they’re like, yeah, we’ve never driven so many Black people to Pixar before in all these years. The actual conversation is much funnier to read.

On the eve of Iraq’s Kuwait invasion there was a marked uptick in pizza deliveries to the Pentagon. PizzInt was a term coined for ‘Pizza Intelligence’. Which is how people in Washington know ‘something’ big is about to happen.

Similarly, the existence of the mafia was outed when a state trooper noticed a lot of expensive cars with out of state plates driving into a small town in New York.
