Top Gear Philippines goes pink – Click above to watch video after the jump

The Philippines outpost of Top Gear Magazine is out to snag as many Facebook likes as possible by August 31. You see, the publication just crafted its 77th issue, and to mark the occasion, it is hoping to pull down at least 77,000 Facebook likes by the magic date (no, we're not sure what the significance is the No. 77 is, either). If fans help make it happen, the magazine promises to paint editor-in-chief Vernon B. Sarne's personal car bright pink. What does he drive? Well, that's not exactly clear, but we do know that Sarne will have to drive his girly machine for a full year before being allowed to change the color.

Cruel? Sure, but this is the internet, and like any good-natured citizen of the world wide web, we demand the satisfaction of watching a colleague trudge to work behind the wheel of a vehicle that's more suited for stocking the Barbie aisle than cruising to the office. To the Facebooks! Hit the jump to watch the Pink Panther-inspired video for yourself.
