The Presidential Seal of Approval
In the year-or-so that his hit American talk show has been airing, James Corden has taken part quite a few Carpool Karaokes of notable importance. Adele gave us all life and vocals late last year; Stevie Wonder reminded us all of his living legend status; Chewbacca Mom chewbacca’d.
But now, James’ jolly sing-along drives have reached presidential status, as he’s filmed his upcoming sketch with none other than Michelle Obama!
Confirming that the Obamas are the coolest First Family to have occupied the White House, Mrs O joins James for a casual drive around the grounds in the latest sketch for The Late, Late Show.
‘Hey there! I hear you’re here for a 1.45 tour and I had a little time on our hands,’ Michelle tells James chirpily as she gets into the car. And it looks as if James is a more than a little shocked to at his very personal guide…
The minute-long preview shows snippets of conversation between the two unlikely new friends, and Michelle tells James that her since becoming one of the most high-profile women in the world, riding passenger side is a rare occurrence – though she recently accompanied daughter Malia after she passed her driving test.
‘This is the only other time in seven and a half years that I’ve been in the passenger’s seat of a car, listening to music, rockin’ out like this!’
Cue ultimate party banger, Single Ladies:
From Gavin and Stacey, to rockin’ out to Beyoncé and Missy Elliott with the First Lady – if there was ever a doubt before, it’s now clear that James has absolutely made it!
Though the full video won’t be available until later this week, check out the preview:
