Top Gear admits causing Icelandic volcano eruption |

As we’re sure most of you have gotten sick from all the media buzz concerning the eruption of Iceland’s Eyjafallajökull volcano, the lads at Top Gear decided to shed some light on the subject, admitting that they actually caused the eruption when filming on location a few weeks ago.

Now before you take this thing seriously, it’s just a joke, so don’t go reporting it to the Daily Mirror or something. James May did film on location in Iceland, using once again the rugged Toyota Hilux models from Arctic Trucks, but didn’t actually plant any C4 to cause the volcano’s eruption.

Still, the Top Gear website did come up with a “scientific” explanation for all of this, coming from “reputed” media commentator Annalisa Kneejerk:

“It has been scientifically proven that Top Gear is responsible for almost every evil in the modern world, so the eruption of a furious tectonic force barely a week after Richard Clarkson’s ‘visit’ can hardly be viewed as mere coincidence. We have it on good authority that Jeremy Hammond drove one of his favorite Ferrari gas-guzzlers at 100mph, straight into the main magma chamber, which could quite easily have caused this geological catastrophe. Thankfully I’ve never watched the show.”

So there you have it. Want someone to blame for a huge ash cloud or airport delays? Top Gear is the perfect sacrificial lamb.
