Top Gear: “Matt LeBond” - 7 mins 41s
Even Joey Tribbiani's most ardent fans will admit he was never a candidate to play James Bond ( though he could pull off a mean tux). Fortunately, this excerpt from the latest series of Top Gear offers an entertaining compromise.
Starring Matt LeBlanc and Chris Harris a.k.a. "Joey from Friends and a bald guy in a bad jacket", it's a scenic duel between LeBlanc's Aston Martin DB11 and Harris's Mercedes-Benz S63 AMG. Of course, playing Bond means there's more than speed traps to worry about...
76 Ltd's Nigel Simpkiss ensures a cogent blend of one-liners, action, and horsepower. Meanwhile, LeBlanc's knowledge of vintage farming equipment continues to impress.
While "LeBond" may not fit in the 007 canon, it suggests the motoring programme is finding its mojo again... though where LeBlanc's trousers are is anyone's guess.
