As the former Top Gear hosts prepare to make their way into Amazon’s television lineup, Jeremy Clarkson began his company advertising in the most predictable way possible—making jabs at former employer BBC.
Clarkson’s first advertisement for the company is for the Amazon Fire TV Stick, and his outright rejection of BBC on the channel list is hilarious enough to watch a few times through. Since the video is only 30 seconds long, we won’t completely spoil the punchline(s) for you. (No spoilers? Are we even Jalopnik anymore?)
Amazon bought the rights to 36 episodes of (Not) Top Gear—in other words, they still haven’t told us the name of the new TV show yet—and though filming has begun with the former Top Gear team of Clarkson, James May and Richard Hammond, a concrete starting date for the series is not yet available. Meanwhile, a judge in Argentina wants to put Clarkson in jail for up to three years over the swapping of a license plate awhile back.
We’re sure Clarkson can just leave Argentine officials in the dust on his Segway—and hey, lots of places don’t require license plates for those.
