THE FIRST LOOK at Jeremy Clarkson’s new programme with Amazon has surfaced with the presenter taking a bit of a dig at the BBC.

The ad starts out with its focus on Amazon’s Fire Stick – a device that allows users to access a range of television services.

The former BBC presented explains that back in the spring he became “unbusy” – something that was ok as he had one of the devices to keep him entertained.

After riding into his living room on a Segway with Steppenwolf’s Born to be Wild as musical accompaniment, he sits down and flicks through the services available on the Fire Stick, brushing off the BBC IPlayer when he comes to it.

Earlier this year the presenter signed a deal with Amazon that was reportedly worth £160 million (€225 million).

The last shot of the ad shows a promotional shot for the upcoming programme that will be hosted by Clarkson and his former Top Gear co-presenters James May and Richard Hammond.
