Amazon Prime Video Announces Amazon's First Rose Parade Float Featuring "The Grand Tour"

The float, which can be seen at the annual Rose Parade held on New Year's Day, January 1, 2018, will be the first from a streaming service and the first float to be pushed for the entire parade

SEATTLE - Dec. 19, 2017 - (NASDAQ: AMZN) - Amazon today announces its plans for a float based on the Prime Original Series with the most watched season premiere in the history of Prime Video - The Grand Tour - which launched its second season on December 8. Amazon's float will appear in the 129th Rose Parade, held on New Year's Day in Pasadena, CA. The float is the first from a streaming service, and Prime members can catch it and all the other parade action on the two-hour special The 2018 Rose Parade Hosted by Cord & Tish, streaming live on Amazon Prime Video, January 1, 2018 at 8:00am PT / 11:00am ET.

In keeping with The Grand Tour's spirit of adventure, this entry is unlike anything seen before in the Rose Parade. The design includes three human-powered floats, each featuring the face of one of the presenters-Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond, and James May-inside a giant wheel. The wheels will each have a collage of images from The Grand Tour, including an array of automotive components such as a hubcap, steering wheel and revolution gauge, as well as icons of global adventure such as a map, famous international landmarks and a series of ring roads.

Eight people per wheel will roll the three-part float for the duration of the 5.5 mile parade route. As the first float to be pushed for the entire parade and in keeping with this year's parade theme of "Making A Difference," The Grand Tour's entry is making a difference with one of the smallest carbon footprints in the parade.

This bold entry features an analogous color scheme with fiery yellow, orange and red hues juxtaposed against crisp black and white. The presenters' faces are painstakingly rendered with subtle blends of nigella, poppy seed and crushed sweet rice. The wheel rims showcase a vibrant ombre effect of roses, including Deja Vu, Kerio, Voodoo, Orange Crush and Star 2000. Silverleaf protea, black nori (seaweed) and coconut flakes are used extensively to decorate the various automotive components. Vivid mosaics of carnations and chrysanthemums provide a technicolor backdrop for the gigantic wheels. As the inner drive wheels roll forward, the outer cosmetic wheels will revolve counter-clockwise. The various other gears, wheels and gauges are animated as well.

The float is built by Paradiso Parade Floats and designed by Charles Meier. For more information on the float design, please visit https://www.tournamentofroses.com/media/resources.

Join the global motoring adventures of Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May, available exclusively through Amazon Prime. Season two of the record-breaking The Grand Tour will see presenters Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May embarking on their most extensive adventure ever, traveling across the globe and attempting to avoid any further mishaps or injuries along the way, before returning home to pitch their studio tent in the Cotswolds, UK. The trio will spend over 100 days across five continents, racking up more passport stamps from Croatia, Mozambique, Dubai, Colorado, Switzerland, New York, Spain and many more exotic locations around the world. Fans can follow The Grand Tour on Facebook and Twitter to be the first notified of upcoming news.

Prime members can stream new episodes of The Grand Tour Fridays, exclusively via the Amazon Prime Video app for TVs, connected devices including Fire TV, mobile devices and online at amazon.com/thegrandtour.
