TomTom Voiced by Jeremy Clarkson Is a BBC Breach of Contract
According to The Guardian, the scheduled plan to allow TomTom users to download the voice of mr. Clarkson had to be dropped.
A BBC Worldwide spokesman explained that the "launch plans were too advanced to prevent the physical product going on sale in retail outlets" by the time the problem was identified.
"In order to avoid any perception of a conflict of interest in the minds of viewers, BBC Worldwide and TomTom have agreed that all monies that would have been due to BBC Worldwide will be paid to BBC Children in Need, together with an additional charitable donation by TomTom," he added.
Guess we’ll just have to go without Jeremy’s sarcasm while he’s not on air.
