The Top Gear team have done a spoof of themselves being interviewed by a BBC insurance clerk as a way to promote their latest series.
And while it certainly plays for laughs, it does nothing to shatter the stereotype of insurance workers being dry, dour and colourless characters.
The scene is set in a brown-walled office full of files and folders with Top Gear’s latest presenter line-up of Matt LeBlanc, Chris Harris and Rory Reid nervously fidgeting before a brown-suited be-spectacled BBC insurance department worker.
The humourless clerk waits until the clock strikes exactly 12pm before starting to grill them on prior motoring convictions, whether they will carry passengers, or partake in competitions.
As each presenter replies in the negative, the film interjects scenes of them being chased by police, picking up a group of naked ramblers and racing each other at great speed on a snowy mountaintop.
The final laugh follows after they are asked: “Will you be requiring fire cover?”
