Stephen Fry’s hilarious Tesla prank 😂 | The Graham Norton Show – BBC


And here’s my question
to you, Andrew Scott. Was that you driving?
No! So… It’s so humiliating.
Do you drive? I do.
Well, I don’t drive. It is the most… Looking for a friend!
“Do you drive?” It’s so humiliating on set.
It’s one of the most
humiliating things because, when you don’t drive,
they get quite worried because it’s all insurance
and when you’re playing a driver… It does seem like poor casting. You’re very good in it, but…
Am I, though? “You’ll believe he can drive!” They come up to you and
they sort of try to help you, and they sort of have to assume that
you’re just completely ignorant. “Do you know a steering wheel?” “Yeah, I know a steering wheel.” “That’s the radio.”
Blah, blah, blah. And then they put you on
what can only be described as a massive skateboard. The whole car, and then
they sort of drag you along, and you do this. And it is just like,
you don’t look like, you know, cool. Like, vroom, vroom! And then you have to
sort of, you know, act. You can never look down. Yeah. Presumably,
you love technology, so you must love
Black Mirror and all the… I do.
I think it’s brilliant. He’s a genius, Charlie Brooker. And, actually, the solution is not
far around the corner because, when I’m in America I have a Tesla,
and it drives itself. It has an autonomous mode. It’s wonderful, if you have friends,
you can scare the living daylights out of them by being on the freeway,
and then, you know, they don’t see you,
you just pull the stalk back three times to go into auto drive
and then you just think… “I don’t know, you got a book?” And they go, “What are you…?
“Keep your eyes on the road!” “No, I can’t be bothered!”
And it drives itself! Another one you can do
as well, a good trick, is, if a passenger falls asleep,
which I hate, because you’ve got to do the driving and there’s
no-one to talk to, I wait until they start waking up
again, and I close my left eye and just… I’m looking, it’s perfectly safe,
but they absolutely… “Wake up!” “How long was I gone for?”

  1. BBC Media Team: What should we do for the title?
    BBC Media Execs:
    The kids love emojis
    😂😣😁😧👌😈

  2. Oh I simply adore Andrew Scott so much. His episode made me sob but as the hot priest in Fleabag makes me laugh.

  3. Everytime I see andrew scott I think he's the guy that plays the hulk that's been on a diet lol anyone else see the resemblece.

  4. Ace here…is that an ace ring on Stephen’s left middle finger, next to his wedding band? If so I think he’s the first celeb I’ve seen wearing one. Love it😁

  5. Dear BBC, people click on the video because it says Stephen Fry in the title, not because of "hilarious prank 😂". Stop it.

  6. Surprised that the BBC didn't put out a disclaimer so I'll do it for them: TESLA'S DO NOT DRIVE THEMSELVES. DO NOT TAKE YOUR EYE OFF THE ROAD IN AUTOPILOT MODE. IT IS SIMPLY DESIGNED TO BE LIKE AN ASSISTED CRUISE CONTROL FEATURE. YES TECHNICALLY IT WILL DO MOST OF THE WORK BUT DRIVERS MUST PAY ATTENTION TO THE ROAD AT ALL TIMES. Thank you.

  7. Lee Mack's was funnier but I imagine Stephen gets more views so it's his name in the title! Both good, though 🙂

  8. Norton's fake laugh he does with every single guest anecdote is so irritating. I just can't watch him interview people.

  9. I didn't think Stephen would have friends so stupid that they didn't know about Tesla's autonomous mode but he did say it was in the States.

  10. 400 episodes of The Graham Norton Show have aired, but these famous Brits have never been guests: Sade, David Bowie, Mick Jagger, Ben Kingsley, Tom Hardy, David Jason, Zoë Wanamaker, Sean Bean, Colin Firth, Christian Bale, Emma Watson, Anthony Hopkins, Daniel Day-Lewis, Tilda Swinton, Naomi Watts, Sally Hawkins, Jason Statham, Sacha Baron Cohen, Angela Lansbury, Kristin Scott Thomas, Jeremy Irons, Alan Rickman, Tim Roth, Bob Hoskins, Julie Christie, Christopher Lee, John Hurt, Clive Owen, Ian McShane, Richard Attenborough, Tom Wilkinson, Vanessa Redgrave, David Suchet
    , Michael Gambon, Elizabeth Hurley, Lena Headey, Joseph Fiennes, Rufus Sewell, Jane Leeves, Joely Richardson, Natascha McElhone, Julia Ormond, Derek Jacobi, Charlotte Rampling…….WHY GRAHAM, WHY?

  11. Hotmail is there anyway if we could arrange a call tomorrow morning or early afternoon to discuss this further please give us a shout or give us sky💐

  12. I have been in a tesla when I had this happen to me as a passenger. Not only did the "driver" almost run a red light, but it almost rear ended the motorbike stopped there…. luckily the actual driver took over and stopped the vehicle. Autonomous, yes. Safe, no.

  13. Here’s the other gag for a sleeping passenger (only works at night): pull into a mall parking lot and find a place where you can pull up to a brick or concrete block wall. Turn off the headlights and pull up within a few feet of the wall. Put the car in park. Then, all at once, turn on the headlights, lean on the horn, and scream. Better if there are a few other accomplices in the car. Waving your arms around helps. Your victim wakes up to a view of the “oncoming “ brick wall. Priceless. They will never sleep in the car again.

    A friend used to do the one eye closed thing on his kids. He’d be driving them somewhere and claim to be extremely sleepy. He’d “nod off” and drive them in a slightly swervy way with them yelling at him to wake up. Then he’d “wake up” and say “Oh, we’re here already.”

  14. I thought Lee Mack was trying to act like he had stroke when he closed his left eye and tilted his head… That'll scare the hell out of the passenger for sure.

  15. Awkward moment at the end as Lee Mack provides an alternative prank option for ordinary folk who can't afford a Tesla.

  16. I live in the states and had no idea that auto-driving Teslas were beyond the testing phase and actually being used on public roads! Can't say I'm exactly thrilled on the idea!
