Top Gear fans are likely aware the show has been canceled after one of its stars got himself suspended for allegedly punching a producer.

Political blog Guido Fawkes collected the signatures voicing support for the host, packed them into a tank and drove it to the BBC. Yes, apparently you can drive a tank whenever you feel like in Britain.

To make the most of the stunt, a person dressed as The Stig was standing out of the top hatch of the tank, while banners reading “Bring Back Clarkson” were placed on the sides of the armored vehicle.

Naturally, the whole thing was recorded on video, and posted on YouTube and Vine – see them below.
