First look: Clarkson, Hammond and May brainstorm names for their new Amazon Prime show


Jeremy Clarkson’s new Amazon Prime motoring show does not have a title yet, but it can now boast a trailer in which the former Top Gear star brainstorms possible names alongside co-hosts James May and Richard Hammond.

The trailer opens with the 55-year-old asking Richard and James: “How long can we keep calling it, “Currently un-named TV show?”

Richard suggests, “Auto Mates?” and also comes up with, “Tri Pod.”

“That’s someone with an erection,” James counters.

“Selling England By The Pound?” Jezza says. “The show, I think, will sit on the internet like – and this is what I’m suggesting for the name – A Small Puddle Of Excellence.”

James offers: “One I thought of in bed the other day … ”

Jeremy interjects with: “Is it called ‘God, that’s small?’”

“The Clarkson, Hammond And May Show On Amazon,” James says, finally finishing his sentence.

Jezza rejects it as “Too long.”

Amazon’s hashtag for its new series is as follows: #TheStillVeryMuchUntitledClarksonHammondMayAmazonPrimeShowComingAutumn2016

Jeremy recently revealed the results of his “most dangerous stunt” ever: a bloodied nose and blackened face during filming for the motoring show.

The stunt appears to have taken place in Jordan.

Scheduled for an autumn release, it follows the launch of the BBC’s revamped Top Gear in May, which has Chris Evans at the helm.
