The year was 1988, and Clarkson, certainly by today’s standards, looked pretty odd. Maybe it is because he was wearing a tie, blazer and khakis. What? No jeans!?. Or maybe it was the hair.
In any case, the clip has gone online showing Jezza watching the video clip of himself from his first ever appearance on Top Gear in ’88.
The vehicle? A Bentley sedan that had been modified and turned into the coupe. As far as Jeremy Clarkson himself goes, he definitely wasn’t the Jeremy Clarkson he is today.
While appearing on the Michael McIntyre Chat Show, Jezza was show that first clip along with one from 1991. Sporting that massive mullet-afro thing on top of his head, Jeremy Clarkson ditches the frat boy attire for jeans, a pair of bright white high-tops and the over styled black leather jacket that, as far as today’s fashion goes, looks more appropriate on women.
Luckily, the topic regarding which is the better every day Ferrari of the early 90s, the F40 or 348, makes up for Clarkson’s ridiculous appearance. But it is cool.
It was the 90s, after all. We all looked and dressed a bit stranger back then. Jeremy Clarkson also says that Top Gear became the Top Gear we know now in 2002, when the triumphant that is Clarkson, May, and Hammond got underway. But I’m still laughing at the, whatever the hell that hairdo ought to be called.
