Some say he's nothing but a short, funny-looking decorative garden accessory. Others say his best friend is a little bunny rabbit who hops on by. All we know is, he's not the Stig — he's a garden gnome. That's right, the Brit-boy threesome of Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May stepped back from their adventures in high horsepower for a bit of charity work on the Beeb last month. The hosts of the world's greatest motoring show in all the world took a run at resurrecting the greatest gardening show we've all probably never seen — Ground Force — for the charity telethon Sport Relief. The one-off mashup, called Top Gear Ground Gear Force, took the "Punk'd"-like ethos of the original pruning show and added a dose of the hilarious by completely demolishing the backyard of Sir Steve Redgrave, their target. We're surprised we hadn't seen it yet — especially as the three co-hosts managed to show off the most impressive jet-powered backyard chicken rotisserie we've ever seen. But after a late night torrent session, we've now rectified that issue. It's high time you did the same, so we've dropped the full episode below the jump, so get to it.
