The Grand Tour host Jeremy Clarkson has revealed his plan to help out people in his village with an all-new video on the DriveTribe YouTube channel.

Thanks to the difficult times faced by the world at the moment, communities across the world have been pushed into lockdown situations. This has limited how many people can congregate in a group, and even pushed stores into chaos with limited shopping stock. 

As a result, food, drinks, and other everyday items – with the most notable being toilet paper – have become scarce commodities in certain parts of the world. Yet, if things get worse in his part of Southern England, Jeremy Clarkson has a pretty generous plan for those in need of some help.

Clarkson owns a working farm – but the farm shop has closed its doors for now.

The former Top Gear host, who recently bought a farm in Oxfordshire, has been growing potatoes and other items – selling them to fans who want to have a look at his own farm shop. Though, he’s had to shut down.

As a result, the 56-year-old noted that he has about “10 tonnes” of spare potatoes that he could give away to locals who may need them. “When self-isolation really kicks in and the older people in the village are really struggling, I’ll give all these potatoes away to them,” he revealed in a video on DriveTribe.

“So, I won’t have grown them for nothing, they’re not just going to rot,” Clarkson added, noting that someone had told him that his local supermarkets had no potatoes on sale. “I think I’ve got about 10 tonnes left, so there’s plenty to go around.”

The British TV presenter even joked that some people have been “hoarding lavatory rolls” before showing off his impressive stash of potatoes inside the ‘Diddly Squat’ farm shop. 

Clarkson’s farm isn’t just a novelty thing, either. The 56-year-old has made an Amazon series about it, so fans will get to see what it looks like when it’s in full working order – not just handing out potatoes to those in need of them.

Cadillac backs TSM in car company’s very first esports partnership

Popular esports and entertainment organization Team SoloMid — more commonly known as TSM — has announced a partnership with luxury auto brand Cadillac in the car company’s first-ever esports venture.

On January 11, TSM announced its exclusive partnership with Cadillac, marking the very first time the esteemed automotive company has entered such a business venture with competitive gaming groups.

The initiative kicked has off with a special TSM jersey featuring the Cadillac logo — a swanky fit that the organization flexed in a tweet revealing their latest money move.

That’s not all; according to TSM’s press release, their newfound partnership will also include some very special features for their fans, such as “access to exclusive streaming events, custom video and social media content, and experiential events and activations at the brand new, state-of-the-art TSM Performance Center.”

It looks like there’s a lot to be excited for, and even Cadillac is jazzed to be part of the proceedings, according to GM’s Manager of Emerging Media and Partnerships, Bryan Steele.

“Cadillac is excited to enter the esports space as part of the TSM family,” Steele said of the development. “Whether on the road, or on the Rift, our organizations place an incredibly high value on innovation and craftsmanship. Given our shared values, and the pedigree of Cadillac and TSM, it was a natural fit to team up with one of the most decorated esports teams in the world.”

While TSM might be Cadillac’s first esports partnership, this isn’t the first time a luxury car brand has gotten involved with an esports group; in November 2020, Chinese car brand Haval partnered with Epic Esports Events for their EPIC League Dota 2 initiative.

Just a month prior to Haval’s own initiative, Mazda entered a deal with Hellraisers. Other auto brands similarly involved with esports include Honda with Riot Games’ LCS and Team Liquid, McLaren with DragonX, Audi with Astralis Group, and Kia with the LEC.

It seems that more and more car companies are looking to get in on the action that competitive gaming brings. Who knows — it would be really cool to see a special TSM-wrapped Cadillac someday.
