Clarkson did a thing!

Jeremy Clarkson, host of popular Amazon Prime show Clarkson’s Farm, has found himself the centre of yet another twitter feud, this time with YouTuber Alex Apollonov over the phrase “I did a thing”.

Four trade mark applications were filed for the phrase on 13 October 2021 by the company Curdle Hill Farm Limited, of which Clarkson is a co-director with his wife. Apollonov, whose YouTube channel is called “I did a thing” took to twitter to voice his fury over the recent trade mark applications, tweeting Clarkson:

“My cousin’s girlfriend’s sister is a lawyer and she is pretty good. You better watch out.”

Clarkson responded claiming he had no knowledge of the trade marks. However, a source allegedly told The Sun Newspaper Clarkson had made the application in the hope of releasing official merchandise with the phrase. This comes after the motto was made particularly popular on the Hit Amazon Prime show. The marks have been applied for in classes covering books, both coffee and beer mugs, and a range of clothing items.

Metro reported Apollonov is seeking to take appropriate legal action, but it is yet to be seen how the dispute will unfold.
