Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May have released a new video which shows them brainstorming names for their new Amazon Prime show. It turns out that naming a TV Show is much, much harder than it looks.
In the video, Richard Hammond suggested it could be called ‘auto-mates’ and ‘tripod; – with James May dismissing the latter because it is “someone with an erection.” Clarkson’s suggestions of ‘Selling England by the Pound’ and ‘Watcher of the Skies’, were album and song titles by prog-rock band Genesis, and were promptly shot down.
Clarkson later mentioned on Twitter that the new show couldn’t have the word ‘gear’ in it because of legal reasons. Twitter users then put forward their own show title suggestions, which included ‘Three Guys, A Car and a Pizza Place’ and ‘2 Men and a Hamster’.
Here at MotoringBox we’ve always preferred the ‘Gear Knobs’ name, but with that name now seemingly off limits, what do you think they should call it.
