Leo Prinsloo, he’s the guy from the South African attempted armoured car robbery video. He was a former member of the SAPS (South African Police Service) Task Force
The driver said this in an interview: “My crew member had experience in armed response, but this was the first time that he had been fired upon. The first time that I was shot at, I assure you I was wide-eyed, and I’m grateful that there wasn’t a camera pointed at me during it. He did everything that I asked him to do and kept his head. I tried to have him phone our colleagues, but the criminals were using a signal scrambler.
I had him get our AR-15 prepared just in case things went south. Because there were no gun ports, we’d have had to open the doors to engage with the jackers, and I‘d only have done that if we had been capsized. That is what I needed him to do. I have to say for all of those keyboard warriors who have tried to dissect his performance, I doubt they would be as tough in the middle of an armed jacking.”

The Simpsons writing staff in 1992
The slightly grumpy Ron Swanson looking guy on the right with a mustache in the white button down shirt is John Swartzwelder (fourth from left) . This might literally be the only known photograph of him and there was speculation at one time about whether or not he was even a real person or just a pseudonym for when the writers couldn’t decide who deserved credit. He famously hates being in the public eye and was anti-social enough that he didn’t even want to come into the office. His writing was so good though that they let him. In the 90s.
He is credited as the writer on 59 episodes of The Simpsons. The second most credits by any writer is 34. For a show with over 700 episodes. Most of those scripts he wrote at home alone and then mailed into the office. They were then gone over and revised by the other writers just like all the scripts but he gets the writing credit. He also wrote a series of comedy books starring bumbling detective Frank Burly. The first one is called The Time Machine Did It. They are all hilarious.
