The Grand Tour Presents: Seamen is finally out after a long wait of over a year, so Clarkson, Hammond and May are out on their promotional YouTube circulation. Of course, how could the video not begin without some Seamen puns to get the heart beating, and the laughing doesn’t stop as they continue to answer questions hilariously throughout the video.
“Andy Wilman [The Grand Tour producer] is..?” the video asks. “Up to his neck in Seamen,” chimes in Jeremy Clarkson. Other similar questions ensued such as, “Great seamen ever was..?” James replied with a clever quip: “The one that produces me I suppose you’d have to say.”
When asked about marketing, they all had similar answers. “Bullshit,” chimed in James May, with Clarkson calling it a ‘waste of my life, time, energy,” and Richard replying with simply, “evil”.
With Seamen being set partly in Vietnam, they are asked what they’re favourite part of the country was. Jeremy laughs as he says: ‘The Vietnamese love somebody else’s downfall, they’re very like us.” James adds that Hammond was “incredibly popular there as a result”.
The episode aired on Friday 13 December with some viewers finding that it was uploaded to Amazon Prime Video earlier than expected. It has been meet with mostly positive reviews, but plenty of negative remarks have been floating around the internet.
