Jeremy Clarkson, the former host of Top Gear and current presenter of The Grand Tour, has made a hilarious joke at the expense of his co-presenter Richard Hammond on Instagram. In a photo he shared, he displayed a row of extremely small car seats, with the caption “Seats for Hammond!” The picture quickly garnered a lot of attention, with over 35,000 likes in less than thirty minutes.
Despite Jeremy Clarkson’s height and Hammond’s… lack thereof, the two presenters remain close friends and often tease each other in public. Fans of the duo quickly joined in on the fun, with many making their own humorous comments about the miniature car seats, with some even suggesting that they were perfect for the pint-sized Hammond.
One fan jokingly asked if there was a child-sized seatbelt available that could easily be cut through by firefighters. Another suggested that the seats were taken from every car that Hammond had crashed, while others made references to the presenter’s famously diminutive stature.
Clarkson’s comment may have sounded like a playful dig at his former colleague, but Hammond is no stranger to making similar jokes himself with digs being thrown from each corner during shows such as The Grand Tour.
Despite the humorous ribbing, it is clear that Clarkson and Hammond have a great deal of respect and affection for each other. Whether they are poking fun at each other’s height or mocking their choice of cars, the two presenters remain beloved figures in the world of automotive entertainment.
