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.

      First, let me say that video was pretty damn well done. Very enjoyable to watch. Second, if I were said editor and the goal was reached, not only would I not mind a pink car, I'd embrace it. Could they do matte pink? That plus flat black wheels...Yeah, I could rock that.

      here's what i never understand when a company asks us to "like" them. they never do anything FOR US when we do. such a short-term strategy.

      This is stupid, moronic and infantile and speaks poorly for anyone voluntarily involved.

      Top Gear Philippines? Why does the BBC allow their brand to be *****'d out in such a fashion?

        Top Gear Philippines is one of the premiere auto magazine in the PHL. You must read an issue of it before you tell some random things. Oh yeah better remind you that's what Top Gear do.... at least not a biased like others.

        Not in the Philippines. It's just a number. But I suppose it being a Catholic nation and all... Personally I would go for 666.
