James Corden truly hates the drivers of Los Angeles and answers, “Nope!”, to the question, “Haven’t the drivers of Los Angeles been through enough?!” Because he already terrorizes the streets of Los Angeles by unleashing yodeling famous people on them with Carpool Karaoke, and he struck again on Friday. James and his co-stars from future Razzie sweeper, Amazon’s Cinderella, busted out a flash mob in front of traffic stopped at a red light in West Hollywood. James (who plays a footman/mouse), Camila Cabello (Cinderella), Idina Menzel (Cinderella’s stepmother), Billy Porter (Cinderella’s fairy godparent), and others all got dressed up as their Cinderella characters to sing and shake their asses to Jennifer Lopez’s Let’s Get Loud in the middle of the street. Some drivers probably thought to themselves, “A flash mob? Did I just drive into 2005?” as others used every will in their being to resist the urge to hit that gas pedal hard and careen out of that mess.
The skit was filmed as a Cinderella promo that will air on James Corden’s talk show, The Late Late Show, sometime next week. So obviously this was completely staged and the drivers were probably in on it. I hope they got a huge check because they’re going to need it for therapy to deal with the trauma of seeing James Corden fucking the air while dressed in an off-brand Jerry the Mouse costume from Wish.

And also to deal with Camila Cabello aggressively warbling at them:

You know how some road rage drivers have to complete court-ordered anger management? Their final test in anger management should involve sitting at a red light while James Corden and Camila Cabello dance and sing around them. If they can get through that without losing it, they can get through anything!
TMZ also points out that after the performance, James Corden became James Blunt when he took a hit from a blunt passed to him by someone in a car. TMZ calls it a “COVID-Risky Blunt,” which someone needs to snatch for their band name.

That is disturbing. I mean, imagine being surrounded by a thrusting James Corden and a yodeling Camila Cabello and you have a blunt in your hand BUT then pass it off to someone else? Catching COVID cooties aside, who in their right mind would give up the good shit when they need it the most? I’d need to speed smoke that thing in one second flat to deal with all that messiness.
