Our second CD-ROM for GQ magazine embraced paranormal themes whilst staying true to the publication’s laddish roots. This edition featured chart-toppers The All Saints, Fashion mogul Paul Smith, Model Tina Harlow and X-Files stars Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny. It also included clips from seminal Boxing matches throughout history and advice from Damon Hill regarding what it takes to be a Formula One driver.
