After a viral video went around the world for a week showing James Corden's jeep being towed for a recording of 'Carpool Karaoke', the host addressed the controversy on his show last night.
"I know this looks bad," Corden began. "But I just want to say, right now, that I always drive the car unless we’re doing something where we think it might not be safe, like a dance routine or a costume change or if I’m drunk."
The video, which was viewed over 13 million times, showed Corden in the Range Rover with Justin Bieber as it was being hauled by a truck. None of that should surprise anyone - as any time you see someone driving a car on screen and there's a camera in their face, it's being hauled by truck. Why? Something to do with insurance, probably.
Corden, however, explained that "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 5 p.m. and pretend that it’s late. Reggie Watts isn't actually here, he’s 100 percent CGI. And I hate to be the bearer of even more bad news, but while we’re getting things out in the open, I don’t actually need them to help me get to work, right?"
Yeah, maybe. Maybe not. Here's Corden's explanation revealing the distressing news.
