James Corden is known for funny shticks as host of The Late Late Show, especially if they involve music. His latest offering is a parody of Brandy & Monica’s The Boy Is Mine music video, with a super relatable twist. In this take, Corden and Transparent’s Jeffrey Tambor fight over resident Star Wars heartthrob John Boyega.
Singing, naturally, ‘the Boyega is mine’, all three stars completely commit to the bit.
Part of wooing the movie star includes feeding him, massaging his feet, and playing the classic hand game Slide. Oh, and fabulous looking pajamas, of course. Corden’s silver silk jammies looks especially great.
While trying to win John Boyega is definitely something we’ve all dreamt of, a lot of people are also talking about Corden’s singing in the video. It’s no secret the man is musically-inclined (look at his Carpool Karaoke videos or his role in Into the Woods), but he nails the high notes here.
Still, it doesn’t look like the Boyega will be anyone’s when the truth is revealed…
