James Corden Pokes Fun At Cats As He Clears Up Rumours Carpool Karaoke Is Faked
The Late Late Show host was reacting to a viral video shared online last week, which showed his car being towed along by a rig, while he filmed a new edition of the recurring segment with Justin Bieber.
Opening Wednesday’s episode of his talk show, the Gavin & Stacey creator conceded “this looks bad” but called it “fake news”, insisting he is at the wheel “95%” of the time.
He added that he always drives the car unless there is a safety issue.James explained said: “95% of the time I really am endangering the lives of the world’s biggest pop stars. But this is a TV show, not everything is real.
“Our show doesn’t tape after midnight – we tape at 5pm and pretend that it’s late.”.@JKCorden finally comes clean about #CarpoolKaraokepic.twitter.com/hOLOPcJO2E— The Late Late Show with James Corden (@latelateshow) January 30, 2020Joking about the critical mauling Cats received while poking fun at the reaction to the Carpool Karaoke video, James – who plays Bustopher Jones in the big-screen musical – said: “I’m just shocked I’ve done something that upset people more than Cats.”Executive producer Ben Winston previously set the record straight on the fakery claims, tweeting: “We only use a rig when we are doing a ‘stunt’ as part of the Carpool – when it would be impossible for James to drive!” Ben insisted. “This has occurred only maybe 4 times in 50 or so carpools… Safety is key!
“By stunt I mean – dance routines / costumes / props etc ! Dont worry too much though. I’m pretty sure there are bigger issues to worry about!”Not true! We only use a rig when we are doing a "stunt" as part of the Carpool - when it would be impossible for James to drive! This has occurred only maybe 4 times in 50 or so carpools... Safety is key! https://t.co/kfJXqZqEHq— Ben Winston (@benwinston) January 23, 2020By stunt I mean - dance routines / costumes / props etc ! Dont worry too much though.
