Peter Griffin reads Top Gear magazine

Family Guy star revealed as fan of Britain’s biggest motoring mag

 

Top Gear magazine – Britain’s biggest-selling monthly motoring title! – already boasts a legion of celebrity readers. Simon Cowell, Jeremy Clarkson, that bloke that used to be in Hollyoaks and… um… did we mention Simon Cowell?

And now it seems Britain’s biggest-monthly motoring selling title can claim another A-lister follower in the shape of Family Guy star Peter Griffin.

An exclusive spy shot in December’s issue of Top Gear magazine reveals Griffin engrossed in another hilarious-yet-informative article in Britain’s biggest-motoring selling monthly title, while a cartoonificated Jeremy, James and Richard look on in terror.

Yep, that’s a fictional character reading a copy of a magazine… within that magazine. It’s all got a trifle meta, hasn’t it?

The issue also includes a no-holds-barred interview with the man himself, in which Griffin reveals he once owned a Lamborghini (OK, a toy one), admits to driving at a dizzying 88mph and unleashes his top drifting tips.

To read the full interview, make sure you pick up December’s issue of Top Gear magazine, on sale Wednesday November 6. Does anyone have any idea what’s going on here?

(In completely unrelated news, Family Guy Season 12 is out on DVD from today) 

Now share it...
