Can I meet Faisal?
Faisal would love to meet each one of you personally.
Where do the vehicles come from? Are they rented?
What car does Faisal own?
Does he need to own a car when brands almost always send him one or the other vehicle to test drive and vlog on? With his schedule jam-packed with traveling, testing and vlogging, Faisal never ends up using the car at home, thus he prefers to not talk about it.
Why is the co-passenger always on the phone when you vlog?
Faisal uses a head-mounted action camera to shoot driving vlogs and thus can't monitor the frame. Hence a co-passenger monitors the angle of the camera which continously moves due to acceleration, braking, road bumps, sweat (AC off always), etc.
What does 'That's What She Said' mean?
You might have heard Faisal use 'That's What She Said' many times in vlogs and wonder who is the 'she' he is refering to? This is just a joke from a sitcom called 'The Office'. Watch the video below to better understand the relevance.
