Stop What You’re Doing And Enjoy Some Retro Jeremy Clarkson

So the other day I was doing my typical YouTubing. Watching car builds, nerd reviews of upcoming nerd movies when I stumbled across a hidden gem from 1999. The gem in question featured Jeremy Clarkson, a Pre-Top Gear Reboot Jeremy Clarkson, complete with his famous brillo pad hair. The video in question was one of his standalone car films. Typically he drives all manner of exotic fare and they’ve become full of sliding and tire smoke and we enjoy them very much. This one has a slightly different feel. Still typically Clarkson but somehow more educational. It feels something more like his documentaries on the Victoria Cross or the Raid on St. Nazaire but about cars. Both of those are hugely entertaining and I highly recommend you watch them, but for today were here to talk about this. The video in  question is about the rise of the Japanese motoring industry after World War II.

The video quality is a bit shit, and the production value isn’t the same as The Grand Tour, but neither of that matters. This is Jeremy Clarkson talking about cars and entertaining you as only he can. So reserve yourself 22+ min and enjoy yourself some retro Clarkson.
