Jeremy Clarkson has filmed a new advert for Amazon’s Fire TV stick, the retailer’s ultra-small streaming ‘box’ which converts a standard TV into a Smart TV capable of receiving Amazon Prime Video, Netflix, BBC iPlayer and a host of other catch-up and on demand services.
The advert is the latest to be filmed by The Grand Tour host and focuses on the Fire TV stick’s Alexa voice controls which allows users to search and play for their favourite shows just by speaking their name.
Clarkson, along with fellow Grand Tour stars Richard Hammond and James May, are currently filming the second season of the show.
However the show has been thrown a major upset after Hammond last week badly injured his knee in a crash which left the car he was driving as a burnt out wreck.
Fan concern for the star’s wellbeing led show bosses to issue a statement reassuring them that Hammond was alive and had ‘only’ fractured his knee.
Clarkson has since revealed that scripts have had to be rewritten to account for the fact that Hammond won’t be able to drive for several more months.
Series one of The Grand Tour was one of Amazon’s top rated and most watched original shows and won plaudits from reviewers and fans alike for its big budget location shoots.
Subject to any disruption caused by Hammond’s accident, series two is expected to debut on Amazon Prime Video in November.
