Amazon Wants Former Top Gear Presenters To Commentate On Premier League Games
Amazon has hilariously teased the idea of getting former Top Gear presenters Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May back together to do Premier League commentary.
Prime Video won a broadcasting package for the Premier League this season and is showing nine matches on Boxing Day.
And Clarkson took to Twitter to praise Amazon for streaming the football and saying that it is "so obviously the way forward."
The 59-year-old columnist tweeted: "This Amazon Prime football thing is so obviously the way forward. And so many employment opportunities for pundits."

The Prime Video Twitter account wasted no time in responding to Clarkson and suggested it was time to bring the band back together.
Amazon tweeted: "Next time, how about a commentary option featuring Clarkson, Hammond & May?!"

Fans have instantly warmed up to the idea and called on Amazon to make it happen for the following season.
Twitter user Eoin posted: "would honestly be the greatest thing ever."

While another user argued: "Yes!! Please buy all the football rights."
A third fan said: "That would be awesome."
And Twitter user PJ added: "I'd watch that and I don't watch football."
That would be worth the prime membership alone!

Amazon showed Premier League fixtures earlier this month and left a lasting impression on fans.
Fans were quick to praise Prime Video for the ability to access the stadium atmosphere over commentary.
And the video-streaming platform also allows fans to access stats, highlights and line-ups on the right-hand side of the screen while matches are going on.
