As a Grand Tour prank goes wrong, Jeremy Clarkson leaves James May with his head in his hands, yelling ‘A**e!’
JEREMY CLARKSON left his Grand Tour co-host James May disappointed during the most recent edition, Lochdown, when a high-risk stunt he attempted failed.
When The Grand Tour returned to Amazon Prime Video last month with a new special, Lochdown, former Top Gear trio Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond, and James May were in fine form. Set in Scotland after the coronavirus outbreak, the three hosts encountered a new set of obstacles as they attempted to maneuver their way across the Scottish isles while driving some very unwieldy American automobiles. After Jeremy had to aid co-star James when his car became trapped on an improvised bridge, the size of their cars became even more apparent.
The moment occurred after Jeremy, James, and Richard had just about made it to North Uist, a Scottish island off the coast.
The trio could see the finish line from the island, albeit there was one problem: it was on the other side of a lake.
The Grand Tour hosts were given the last duty of building a floating bridge out of plastic compartments in order to get to their destination.
While this was far from easy – Richard ended up in the lake after his fishing boat capsized – the hosts eventually managed to secure the bridge to the other side.
James, in his Cadillac Coupe de Ville, was the first to take on the less-than-sturdy construction.
“How likely is it that he’ll make it across?” Before giving his own response, Jeremy enquired: “Negligible.”
But, by moving slowly and steadily, James seems to have gotten into the swing of things, even if he did discover a problem: “I think my exhaust is starting to drag along the floor.”
And, in the end, it proved to be too much of a challenge to conquer, as James became stopped on the bridge, his automobile wedged between the plastic sections, only meters from the crossing.
“This is hilarious,” Jeremy said before Richard proposed a solution, which featured Jeremy driving his Lincoln Continental onto the same bridge as his co-host in an attempt to displace him.
Jeremy decided to perform a dangerous stunt by smashing his own car into the rear of James’. “Brinkwire News in Condensed Form.”
