Carpool karaoke a major succes… Why?
We are all familiar with James Corden´s THE LATE LATE SHOW on CBS (if not get out of that cave and start watching it!) and its famous sketch CARPOOL KARAOKE but why is it that we find this sketch so amazing?.
The formula is ridiculously simple: two people driving around and singing along to the radio and chatting casually. Corden has coaxed everyone from Justin Bieber to Mariah Carey to Sia to Carrie Underwood to One Direction to ride shotgun with him and drive around the streets of Los Angeles chatting and singing but we ask again why is this so amazing? The fact is that when celebrities we love and admire come down to earth and level with us we go crazy and this is exactly what Corben does in his sketch, he takes celebrities to a mundane situation and we simply love to see them in this very “normal” situation, it amuses us to see this side of them that we can relate to.
His segment with Adele has become the most viewed online clip in the history of late-night television. It has been watched a staggering 90m times in two months, thanks in no small part to the joy of watching Adele flawlessly rapping Nicki Minaj’s verse in Monster. Bieber’s video has close to 70m views, and Iggy Azalea’s ride has been watched more than 31m times. (And just three days after J Lo hopped into the car, her clip has racked up 15m views.).
Here are some of our favorite sketches.
