Jeremy Clarkeson is the guy in the clip and he is one of the presenter of 'Top Gear' over here in the UK. Its a very succesfull show with a studio audience which at present, if every one who has applied to be a member of the audience was to go to the studio, the show would have to run for another 20 years! It does tend to concentrate on the exotic rather than the mundane and has some really good coverage on new developments.

Now most people either love Jeremey or hate him but one things for sure he dosen't like Porsches.

He has two other co-presenters though and one of them has just ordered a Boxster while the other owns either a 911SC or a 964 (not entirely sure which) which kind of balances things up.

If you do get it over there - watch it - its good fun (I had to say that - I know the lighting Designer for the show)

I think in reality Clarkson loves the higher end porsches but slags of Boxsters (or has done so in the past)

It is rumoured that one of the camera men on the show had a boxster and the boxster slagging was an in house joke. this I'm sure will get worse with one of the co-presenters now having one also.

FYI.....Discovery just dropped Top Gear from it's lineup. We have quite the heated threads (aimed at Discovery) going on over at Rennlist to encourage that faithful following to protest the channels desite to cancel the show. There are links in the threads that direct you to customer suggestions/complaint forms.

Sad day in programming when they drop one of the great cars shows. And what, they had a better show to replace it? They have like 5or 6 different Discovery channels and they can't possibly have enough content to fill all that programming space. Hopefully they bring it back!
