Following the “fracas scandal” which ultimately led to Jeremy Clarkson being fired from the BBC, the new ad for the Amazon Fire TV media stick features the former Top Gear presenter taking a jab at his former employer. As he announces in the beginning of the commercial as having recently made himself “unbusy,” he pokes further fun at the BBC and their iPlayer when he scans through the Amazon media stick’s network options. Of course, the ad has perfect timing as it also serves as promotion for Clarkson’s forthcoming new show that is yet untitled. However, we do know that the program will boast 36 episodes aired over three seasons and was acquired through a $250 million USD deal. You can watch the full Amazon Fire TV ad above.
