Our Favorite OLD Top Gear Moments: #7 – The Time The Boys Almost Died

So many to choose from, but this one has GOT to make the list. In series 9 Clarkson, Hammond, and May traveled across the pond to America to complete a series of challenges in typically American beater cars. A pickup, a Cadillac, and a Camaro were procured and off they went. Everything was going according to plan.

Then came what is know as “the challenge” where they painted each others cars with slogans to get the others shot or maimed. Things like “Man Love Rules. OK” and “Country Music Is Rubbish” adorned the cars. “Hillary For President” though is still funny today and she’s still the anti-christ with the Republican crowds. Look at that, they boys are making jokes still relevant today. But what came next we all saw coming. They pulled in for gas and got run out of town in the scariest way imaginable.

Look, we live in the US so don’t take this as how our country operates on the whole. This isn’t an accurate representation of the US mindset, but in the south when you look for trouble, you’re going to get it. Just like you would anywhere else in the world.

We’re glad the guys came out okay from this one, but damn was that good TV.
