James Corden Tried to Bring Back Flash Mobs and the Internet Said NOPE
We truly did not need Corden pelvic-thrusting in a mouse costume in 2021.
When will America’s love affair with James Corden end? Right fucking now, apparently. The ubiquitous actor and talk show host inspired road rage in Los Angeles this week, when he planned and performed a flash mob to promote his upcoming Amazon musical Cinderella. The video shows Corden, joined by his Cinderella co-stars Camila Cabello, Idina Menzel, and Billy Porter, performing one of his talk show’s “Crosswalk The Musical” segments, where he routinely stops traffic with a song and dance. In this case, the cast was performing Jennifer Lopez’s “Let’s Get Loud”.

And while the internet has routinely shown its love for other Late Show with James Corden segments like “Carpool Karaoke”, the sight of Corden gyrating wildly in a mouse costume is the cringiest of cringe. As a resident of Los Angeles, I must say, haven’t we all been through enough? It’s 99 degrees outside, everything is on fire, and now I have to sit in traffic while Corden dances around me?
We deserve better. Hell, Idina Menzel and Billy Porter deserve better. The internet was quick to agree, taking the opportunity to dunk on the mugging host. As the video spread, the memes and takes kept rolling in. Here are some of the best responses from folks who were clearly not feeling the magic or the J. Lo of it all. Mean? Sure. Hilarious? Undoubtedly.

James Corden is the most "worked with the robots to betray the humans and get put back into the Matrix as a famous actor" person who has ever existed

Stop blaming Biden for this.

Say what you will about Thanos destroying half of all life in the universe, at least he never appeared in a furry musical flash mob with James Corden.

Casual reminder that James Corden attended a Writers Guild Association meeting to advocate for lowering the pay of late night writers.
So him being dressed as a fucking rat makes sense to me. pic.twitter.com/lNvVyyWi4Q

James Corden won't see your mean tweets, because a clone kills and replaces him every day like The Prestige

At least people are responsible for summoning Candyman. James Corden could just show up at any time.

James Corden doing pelvic thrusts in some kind of mouse costume should finally disillusion anyone who believes in a benevolent god.

"Why were you late to work?"
"Oh, James Corden was thrusting towards me in a fursuit"
"You deserve a week off work from that alone." pic.twitter.com/p0Ij8dFUym

What would you do if you were at a traffic stop and James Corden started pelvic thrusting on your window? Turn around and go back home? Drive into a brick wall? Drive straight to the nearest bar? Let us know in the comments!
