Default Black Stig Returns from the Dead

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8Lkh0...-from-the-dead

Here's a completely new angle on the Stig story. Promise. The black Stig is not dead, or if he died he's back from the dead. Back in 2003 black Stig was supposedly killed in a freak car accident where he drove off a military aircraft carrier and plunged his modified Jaguar into the deep blue sea, never to be seen or heard from again. That was until recently when a video popped up showing the black Stig coming out from the ocean and walking on a beach towards a group of guys as they were playing football.

If this turns out to be real and not just another hoax then it means former NASCAR racer Ben Collins was really the white Stig and he's been fired. According to reports anyone playing the role of the Stig must sign a confidentiality agreement stating that he will never reveal his true identity. Should his name become public either through his own doing or that of any BBC Topgear employee then he will be killed off. That's exactly what happened to former British racing driver Perry McCarthy after revealing he was the black Stig.

A few months ago the name of Ben Collins came out stronger and stronger as the best candidate for the identity of the current Stig with one newspaper claiming with certainty that the Stig was indeed Collins.

The video clip doesn't come alone. It is accompanied by a ‘press release' which in part reads: "...how he survived, nobody knows. Some believe he used the nitrous octane equipment from the Jag to breathe. Some believe he can communicate with dolphins and they cared for him. Has he returned because he can sense White Stig has had his identity exposed?"

Is the black Stig about to reclaim his original spot? Watch and see.

Fake IMHO;

1. The Stig never runs by foot.
2. The Stig Isn't that retarded.
3. The Stig would never stop to pay attention to people since he cannot understand humans language.
4. The video is way too stupid for even if jezza himself has done It.

but,

- at least they paid attention for the missing right glove.
- and makes sense to introduce another stig since its indentity could have been compromised.

It is a bit silly, but I did hear about Collins being fired

As the article says, the black stig was Perry McCarthy.., but if the black stig DOES come back, its obviously a new person playing him, and im sure hoping for a death match between the white and black stigs, in a pagani zonda...wow that would be really nice..

"This is Stig!" - doesn't sound much like Top Gear. In the show, people usually don't notice a stig or don't realize what it is.
