Before you fall off your seat laughing at the ridiculous antics of Jeremy Clarkson and James May, be very careful. With their luck Car Rugby could very well be the newest sport at the next Olympics.
The trailer for the hilarious event is full of suspense and displays the agony of defeat in the usual Top Gear fashion, which means fun for the whole family. With something for every movie-goer, there could even be a thrilling police car chase. Remember the days when the term sports car just meant a car that went really fast?
Jeremy Clarkson brings out his A-game. You might not think that having a fleet of cars nudge an oversized rugby ball across a field in Twickenham would be great for TV but the team at Top Gear would prove you wrong. Then again, you might never imagine a midsize sedan could actually “kick” said oversized rugby ball over the goal bar but you’d be wrong again.
They say seeing is believing and it’s still unbelievable how much fun these guys are having. It’s obvious straight off the bat that professional stunt drivers had to be called in. The Stig makes an appearance as the referee/ police with a dramatic display of skill.
In fact, the entire match is so thrilling I wouldn’t mind watching it every day. The threat of impending danger is almost too much. You would think that these cars would inevitably crash into each other with all the excitement and chaos but you’d be surprised at the level of control and athletic dexterity a car can have on a grassy field.
We’re still not sure exactly how this game called car rugby is played but there’s lots of horn-honking and Clarkson yelling at the ball, team mates, opponents and life itself. Oh yeah, and there’s mud, lots of mud.
