Hysterical video: How the British envision NASCAR

Spending vacation in London, Ontario is the next best thing to hopping over the pond to the real London. (Well, at least in theory.)

There’s plenty of British influence not only in London, but nearby Stratford and adjacent Shakespeare, which hosts the legendary annual Shakespeare Festival of plays.

So we were sitting in our hotel room Wednesday night and, while playing on the Internet, came across this hilarious video of one Brit’s take on the world of NASCAR.

Anthony Richardson bills himself as the Bad British Commentator, and it definitely shows through here with his malapropisms and complete lack of understanding of the sport and world of NASCAR.

Among the drivers that suffer Richardson’s scourge and wrath are Jimmie Johnson (watch as his tires get “stolen”), Kyle Larson, Brian Scott and Gray Gaulding.

It’s hysterical. Or, as they say in jolly old England, it’s bonkers!

Thanks to for the video.

    I like dry British humor but that video is anything but funny. Dumb it is, funny it is not, IMO. Different strokes for different folks.
