I have been lurking long enough to realize there are some “not a lot” of BBC Prime TV viewers.
My question is regarding Top Gear and the comments made buy the presenters especially Jeremy Clarkson who has made a profession out of speaking his mind in a humorous and sometimes cutting way.
Do people take note of his remarks regarding certain cars? He seems to know what he is talking about after all he has been in the Top Gear program for some years and if I was in the market for a car I would definitely be interested in his comments about any car I was thinking about buying.
But what about the car makers? When he bad mouths a new model saying after a test drive “I would rather walk back to the studio than drive this another inch” do the manufactures actually take notice?
Surely it must affect sales.
Any dopers got any inside info on this?
