Top Gear: Jeremy Clarkson's new Amazon show still untitled

Posted on

Words are hard. 

Naming a show isn’t always an easy process, especially when there are three co-creators and they all have different ideas. That’s the struggle that former Top Gear stars Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond, and James May are experiencing as they debate the name for their upcoming Amazon Prime series.

In a YouTube video for Amazon U.K., the gearhead trio brainstorm names for their series premiering this fall, poking fun at the fact that they’ve been calling it an unnamed project for months now. Unfortunately, the idea session proves fruitless, although it does give fans some ridiculous title cards to thing about, such as Automates or A Small Puddle of Excellence.

“What about, since there’s three of us, Tripod,” Hammond offers up, only to be shot down by May: “That’s someone with an erection.”

The new series was announced last summer. After Clarkson was let go from his Top Gear contract last March due to an altercation with one of the show’s producers, his co-presenters May and Hammond left the show as well. Four months later, the trio announced that they got picked up for a new Amazon Prime series.

As is very apparent from this video, the series has yet to receive a name. For now, fans will have to be content with #TheStillVeryMuchUntitledClarksonHammondMayAmazonPrimeShowComingAutumn2016.
