As part of the stage setting for a Top Gear episode, the three lads made it look as if they were pipe smokers. When the item went out onto YouTube someone had pixillated every shot where a pipe moves anywhere near to a presenters' mouth.
Poor Nanny BBC got the blame for this but there is
now a theory that Clarkson was at the heart of it all.
When the piece went out, the BBC switchboard received
many complaints about the terrible thing that was
smoking and how dreadful it was that the Top Gear
people seemed to endorse such a dreadful thing.
Jeremy had arranged the cover-up and associated
warning as a pish-take of these complaints.
My respect for the man grows. His demonstrations
re smoking continue.
