Now that people have to deal with Zayn Malik's departure from One Direction and Jeremy Clarkson's removal from Top Gear, the Internet is experiencing a whole lot of emotions. Naturally, Twitter exploded with the idea that Malik and Clarkson could switch places.
With both the hit BBC show and the boy band down a member, both could use a replacement, so why not give Twitter what it wants: a good, old-fashioned switcheroo. If enough people rally behind this movement, we wouldn't be surprised to see if a formal petition gets created LOL.
So do you think it's purely a coincidence that both British stars left their day jobs or is there more to it? Here is what the Twitterverse seems to think:

So Jeremy Clarkson gets fired from Top Gear and Zayn Malik leaves One Direction. Swapping positions perhaps?— Abdul Shohid (@Sho_E7) March 25, 2015

OK this is an idea we can actually get behind:

But was it really that obvious?
This guy isn't even going to play games when it comes to theories:
If this isn't all a conspiracy for Jeremy Clarkson to replace Zayn Malik in One Direction, then my radar is way off the mark...— Will Sebastian (@_WillSebastian) March 25, 2015
This person went the extra mile to really visualize the swap:
