Taxi Wisdom: Very ... What?

The second installment in my new series of taxi slogans is confusing, and requires a bit of exegesis. If you can't quite make it out, it reads: The Very Boy. Which raises the question, "How is 'Very' used in the phrase?"

Does it mean the driver is extremely masculine ... as in, "he is very boy-ish" ... or is it a kind of precise identification ... as in, "this is the very one ..."?

Interesting question ... or not.
