Richard Hammond Is Bored

So one of your co-hosts on the world’s most popular car-themed television show takes a swing at the show’s producer and the whole thing falls into the hamper. What do you do? Well, if you’re the guy in question who threw the punch, you go on to plan your own YouTube series with vague announcements on various media. If your name is James May, you start a cooking show and teach people how to play the recorder. But if you’re Richard Hammond.. you get bored.

To fill his time, Hammond has been filming YouTube shorts that showcase his boredom-alleviation attempts. One involves a Land Rover and a dog and a hunt for sheep. The second one is a shorter version of the first, for those who aren’t as bored as Hammond and need the Cliff Notes version. The third? Well, it’s a short drive (short as in a few seconds) with Hammond in his 1931 Lagonda.

In all, I’d say that Richard Hammond is less bored than he might believe.
