Former Top Gear hosts trying to decide on a name for their new show.

Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May are having some trouble naming their new show - and don't appear to be too bothered about it.

Clarkson tweeted a video of the three former Top Gear hosts discussing name suggestions, while they sit around in an office "Somewhere in London".

Alongside the tongue-in-cheek video, he wrote: "This is how we spend our time at work."


The trio's new Amazon Prime series is still shrouded in mystery and, going by their latest offering of lighthearted banter, there is still a while to go before we find out anything new.

The video starts with Clarkson saying: "It's been months, we still have no name."

The men then start offering suggestions, but get nowhere fast.

Hammond suggests "Automates", only for May to reply with a resounding "No".

Hammond then offers up "Tripod" and again May quickly shoots him down, this time by saying: "That's someone with an erection".

Clarkson gives his two cents, and both turn out to be associated with English rock band Genesis - "Selling England by the Pound", "Watcher of the Skies".

So Hammond steps up and, in true Top Gear fashion, asks Clarkson sarcastically: "Are these just album titles?"

Clarkson then pretends to be serious and begins one of his monologues.

"The show, I think, will sit on the internet like - and this is what I'm suggesting for the name - a small puddle of excellence."

The video, which runs for 1.29 minutes and features more ridiculous name suggestions, ends with the hashtag: #TheStillVeryMuchUntitledClarksonHammondMayAmazonPrimeShowComingAutumn2016.

The wait continues.
