Nelson Mandela Thought Clarkson To Be An Astronaut

By Super Admin

First it was Susan Boyle who was mistook as Queen Elizabeth and now it is Jeremy Clarkson being mistaken to be an American Astronaut by Nelson Mandela when they met in Johannesburg.

The former South African President thought, he and his telly sidekicks James May, and Richard Hammond were three spacemen he was due to meet. This caused all the confusion.

“This was tricky. I couldn"t say that we made a pokey television programme about cars because then he might wonder what on earth we were doing wasting his valuable time," Clarkson said.
