Was it on Top Gear?

Tonight after work, I dined with someone in advertising and our conversation eventually turned to a client. The client was a luxury marque that had been literally downsized over the past decade. The advertising campaign for a new model sought to emphasize the quality of the brand and its relative affordability compared to its competitors. Of the new car, I asked, “Was it on Top Gear? Has Jeremy Clarkson driven it?” The answer was negative. Thus, I replied, “Then I can’t see why it would interest me.”
