Jeremy Clarkson Reveals New Amazon Show's Logo On Twitter

Jeremy Clarkson Reveals New Amazon Show's Logo On Twitter

NOTE: Jeremy Clarkson uploaded this to Twitter before the Ataturk Airport attack!

With absolutely nothing going on in the news at the moment (apart from the prime minister resigning, Britain deciding to leave the EU and Jeremy Corbyn's leadership of the Labour party being questioned) Jeremy Clarkson decided to give all us media-types something to chew on.

He's revealed the new Amazon Prime logo (starring Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May) through the very modern medium of Twitter.

Let's take a much closer look at the retro design...

Hmm. I'm not too sure about it. Looks like the old Kodak logo.

Just me? Cool.

This isn't the first time Jeremy has teased us with regards to the highly-anticipated show. Back in April he posted the following video on Facebook:

Amazon Boss Claims BBC Sacking Jeremy Clarkson Was The 'Dumbest Thing Ever'

So why weren't they allowed to call it Gear Knobs again? I really think they've missed a trick there. Well... it's down to the BBC. Apparently, it was rejected because they wouldn't be too happy with the word 'gear' being used.

"In short, the BBC not only owns the rights to the Stig and the Star in a Reasonably Priced Car and the Cool Wall, but also to any name that is remotely similar to Top Gear," Clarkson wrote in his column for the Sunday Times.

In a statement, Clarkson said: "Thing is, we'll be travelling the world hosting each episode in a different country, from a giant tent. It's a sort of 'grand tour', if you like. So we've decided to call it The Grand Tour."

James May has already admitted to being a bit underwhelmed by the name. "I wanted to call it 'Nigel', or 'Roger'. We needed a name, and they're names."

However, Richard Hammond was more upbeat about the title and the idea of travelling the world with his mates.

"I already love camping," he said. "But this is something else. We are like our pioneering and prospecting forebears, sallying forth into a new frontier of broadcasting, and making our home."

The first episode of The Grand Tour is being filmed in South Africa. In terms of when it'll be on our screens... all we know is that it'll be premiering this autumn.
