Jeremy Clarkson’s beer ad is apparently ‘offensive’

He says he may have to do it again

7w ago

Jeremy Clarkson recently shared a video on Instagram to give us an update on his new Hawkstone lager, made with barley from his farm. He says he’s created a TV commercial to advertise it on ‘Who Wants to be a Millionaire’.

He says he got an email from his lawyers who claim that the scene where he sips the beer and says “fcuk me, that’s good!” contravenes “a number of regulations.” I think he was probably joking, and even if he weren’t joking, all you have to do is replace ’f**k’ with ‘fcuk’ or ‘duck’. Easy does it.

I haven’t tried it yet but based on the pictures, the ABV (4.8%), and the barley, I’d say Hawkstone lager might be the simple, no-nonsense beer you want after you get off from work and join your mates at the pub. Which I presume was Clarkson’s idea all along.

Have you tried it?

  • If I was in Britain and if I was able to hang out with Jeremy Clarkson I would try his beer, especially since I am not a beer drinker

  • Maybe his lawyer said that with the reference to trademark or copyright. Isn't FCUK a brand of clothing and stands for "French Connection United Kingdom"? As to beer, if it comes to Australia, of course I will try it!
