TomTom v Jeremy Clarkson.

Awesome. http://www.tomtom.com/en_gb/products...-gear-edition/

It has a "Stig mode" too, where it goes completely silent.

I hope the sound it makes when it turns on is James May saying "Hello".

Unfortunately, TomToms don't work worth a fuck in N. America....compared to Garmin at least. Ironic since the word "tom tom" is associated with American Indians..

He usually writes his own stuff, but he may have had direction from them.

not a particularly successful advert.
clarkson is so full of rhetoric that he just cannot speak over enchanting music and achieve a sort of morgan freeman-esque humility, which is what they were going for.

still, good game.

the speech pattern, the lexicon, the music, the imagery.

Whataver I thought it was one of the best video game commercials of all time.

Sure beats some in game footage and an announcer that says "In stores now"
