How a man used a taxi to bravely speak out against his government.

Burma has a long, riddled history of repression, and even though we've seen the country taking progressive steps towards freedom in recent years, a lot of people are like, "Er, keep your eyes open, world; there's still a ton of political prisoners and no freedom to say out loud that the government is total sh*t."

This man below was imprisoned for his beliefs and for taking part in peaceful demonstrations. When he was released, there were so many barriers in place for him to live a normal life. Fortunately he and some other former political prisoners found this smart way of making an income *and* keeping their story alive. See below.

"Breadstick Ricky and the Boss" has over 2.3 million subscribers on TikTok and follows the on-the-job shenanigans of The Boss and his coworker, Ricky, a high-voice tradesman who has a knack for getting into trouble.

Comments on the videos show they have a big following with hard-working good ol' boys like the Boss and Ricky characters.
