In this early episode of Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee that I somehow managed to miss, we learn that Ricky Gervais is a very nervous passenger who believes his arms can act as a crash structure of an Austin-Healey 3000, which he calls a "death machine".

I'm very surprised that unlike Seinfeld, Ricky Gervais knows nothing about cars. I mean, first of all, he is British. Car's are pretty much a given. Secondly, last time I checked, he had a house in the part of London which is so full of amazing machinery that you have to be blind and deaf not to recognize them.

Anyway, after correctly guessing that the blue roadster is in fact a British car, once on the move, Ricky calls it a "tin can with no suspension", accuses his host with unnecessary speeding and describes the whole experience as "being dragged along in a tin bath".

So yeah, start your day with a laugh and watch it now!

As for you Mr. Brent, there's always a seat for you in my Autobianchi (you'll learn), and trust me, that can make 60 feel like 70 too!
