For its upcoming second season, The Grand Tour is getting rid of its Celebrity Brain Crash segment, where celebrities were “killed off” in increasingly elaborate fashion. Jeremy Clarkson has an idea for a replacement segment, and you guessed it, it’s a bad one.
Clarkson wants to do something like Top Gear’s Star in a Reasonably Priced Car, except with half an Alfa Romeo. A Halfa Romeo, as he calls it. He takes a power saw to an Alfa 156, and like that The Grand Tour has a new segment. Only problem is no one can drive it. James May tries, and then two of the show’s production staff have a go—all of them spin.
Will Clarkson’s bright idea make the show? Almost assuredly not, but it makes for a fun watch. In any case, a title card at the end of the clip promises that The Grand Tour season two will have celebrities “that don’t die,” so we’ll have to wait and see what they come up with when it premieres on December 8th.
