Mexico takes on Top Gear in animated form – Click above to watch video after the jump

It started with politically incorrect commentary from Jerermy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May; the hosting trio of the BBC's Top Gear. When discussing the Mexican-built Mastretta MXT, the three quickly turned to jokes relating the car to stereotypical viewpoints on Mexican citizens.

Shortly thereafter, the Mexican Ambassador didn't find the spot humorous and complained to the BBC, which in turn has issued an apology (kind of). Now this entire affair has reached the modern pinnacle of worldwide attention... it's been (That's right, you guessed it!) turned into a cartoon by Next Media Animation. Finally!

Click past the jump to view Taiwan's take on the the show's falling out with Mexico. And remember, Top Gear can suck it!

      Racist remarks?

      Nationality != Race

      LMAO! Even the taiwanese news programs make racist animations about Mexico. Cause we all now Mexicans wear samparos and have muskets while beating the Top Gear hosts to death with burritos. I must admit though, this 3d animated dramatizations taiwan news programs come up with are quite hilarious.

        Top Gear's stereotypical jokes: NOT FUNNY = FAIL.
        these stereotypes = WIN!

      Just watched ep2 of season 16 on streetfire.net and Hammons comments were a little harsh even by their own usual standards. Other than that, the 599 GTO sounded amazing flying around a wet topgear track.

        1. they were making fun of a nation , not a race.
        2. they make fun of every nation.
        3. Mexico should chill, they are only hurting their image by making this much fuss about some jokes in a car comedy show.

        when your making a show for the international community its your responsibly to produce it with everyone in mind... sure it may be funny, but its probably not funny on the other end. besides if they have thay have that much of guts, why not insult the british people.... and dont tell me they already did, cuz what they say arent a general insult to the whole population of britain....maybe more like hints of an insult....

      Angry Latin American audience?????? I doubt anyone beside the Mexicans would feel offended. Anyways, I don't think Top Gear is shown in Mexico. By the way, I am Latin American and found it hilarious. I can bet that they will wear sombreros this Sunday.

      The fact that has been reached such a verdict in order to Call them by there "name" of which they call it an insult it is totally wrong, they have to admit to themselves who they are, obviously not all of them are the same but most of them are bad, uneducated, Stupids, corrupted.
      I lived there with them for nearly one year, what they done to me ? They were calling me Homosexual and Screaming behind me this way, I never been homosexual except them.
      They were making noise all night that I cannot sleep, went in my room while I was sleeping and the door locked breaking parts of my bicycle ( key has been provided to them )
      They were all the time in my room with out my authorisation contaminating my food, they Stolen my Car.
      They want to kidnap me on various occasions, including once right in the front of unit I was living, once in a park and once at a petrol station.
      I give to them on various occasions donations making direct deposit in the Bank etc.
      I volunteer at Casa de Cultura in Cancun by fixing and cleaning there computers and Air Condition, the director was corrupted and did not appreciate, but the Library workers did appreciate.
      Some of them are very Honourable and good people but some of them are like this.
