I’ve been fortunate to see a taping of The Late Late Show with James Corden. It all happened because a flight attendant my wife and I met on a flight was a long-time JohnnyJet.com reader and had some serious connections at CBS. Not only did we get front row seats but we also got the VIP treatment, which included a parking spot with our name on it (right next to James Corden’s wife) and a chance to hang out in the green room, which was filled with good food, an open bar, and celebs and their guests (Josh Groban, Heidi Klum and Foy Vance). Later on, I was able to hang out with James at the 69th Emmys in Los Angeles as a guest of Chase (here’s the story).
Well, this past week James took his show to London and did some amazing interviews and skits including an instant-classic carpool karaoke with Sir Paul McCartney (above). The other popular skits included two famous travel brands: British Airways and the Savoy Hotel. Both skits are below:
With British Airways (six minutes)
From YouTube: “James Corden resurrects one of his favorite shows, Pimp My Ride, with a twist. Instead of cars, James sets his sights on the British Airways fleet—making over a plane, from crew to decor.”
With the Savoy Hotel (12 minutes)
From YouTube: “James Corden pays a visit to the famed Savoy Hotel in London to take over a few roles for the day, spending time with the bellmen and head butler, and tending to guests in the dining room before he’s politely asked to return to hosting The Late Late Show.”
