Is Toyota Kissing Up To Jeremy Clarkson?

Company says tribute video "is in no way an endorsement" of Clarkson's recent actions.

FollowingJeremy Clarkson's very indiscreet departure from BBC's Top Gear last week, itseems many fans are taking his side and counting the seconds until he getsback on the air. But as turns out, it isn't only fans of the show who arefinding it difficult to part ways with the popular, yet somewhat controversial,presenter. Even Toyota UK has decided to create its own farewell tribute toClarkson, ending the video with a touching "Thanks for everything, Jeremy.It has been smashing.

However,after being criticized for the video, Toyota released a statement claiming thatit "is in no way a comment on or endorsement of Jeremy Clarkson's recentaction." So is Toyota really just saying goodbye to a friend or anglingfor better reviews on whatever his next show may be?
