Will.i.am.takes Joanna Lumley for a spin in his Tesla Model S broadcast on BBC last night

BBC One broadcast "Joanna Lumley meets will.i.am" on BBC One had some great shots of his Tesla Model S.
Joanna asked him about the car at one point and he was able to show her why he has as Tesla grin.
Very proud to watch a fellow Model S owner and thanks to the BBC.

Unfortunately, the video can't be seen because of copyright issues.

Seems to show up OK in the States, though.

Go to 35:40 if your primary interest is the car......

Great, exposure!

But blimey, Joanna's looking a bit wrinkly these days. I remember, as a young teenager, watching her in The New Avengers and being totally hot for her, but now.

Ah, nothing is permanent, everything changes...

Weird, shows up on my work computer, but was blocked at home this morning.

It's weird seeing her doing a serious show after seeing her on Ab Fab.

Dang, just tried it here in Colorado and it says it blocked on copyright grounds. So someone who's seen it... What does he say about his Tesla? What does he do? Can someone give us he play by play?

"This car is fast."

"yeah" (very underwhelming tone)

And then watch her reaction.

It's an docu and Will I.Am

He picks her up and his hotel in his white Model S and drives her to his old neighborhood and it's only about 20 seconds or so that he talks about the car, he floors it and he says they call me zoom zoom in my car with all the room room....it's wasn't that interesting.

Thank you for sharing the video. Will.i.am was very gracious and inspiring. He is building quite an impressive legacy. The world needs more Will.i.ams.

The Model S was a great supporting star in the show and it got an impressive amount of screen time while Will.i.am escorted Joanna Lumley around his world for a couple days. The car looks so impressive and elegant on the screen.

Will.i.am wears the Tesla grin every time he has an opportunity to show a bit more of the car off to Joanna Lumley. She notices the energy graph at one particular point and asks about the energy spike going off the chart.

"The best car in the world.", says Will.i.am.

"Zoom zoomy. That is what they call me when I'm in my car with and all the roomy."

"The torque!"

I adore Joanna Lumley. What an absolutely fabulous career! I first enjoyed her work in The Trail of the Pink Panther and I later learned that she was in an early James Bond movie. Ever since then I have never looked at a James Bond movie in the same way. I think she looks fabulous, BTW! She has to be one of the hardest working people in TV, film, on stage, in charitable works and activism.

Also 41:20, and 43:20 - "The best car in the world." He's a big techno-booster, a futurist, and the Tesla fits right in.
