Apple TV’s “Carpool Karaoke: The Series” takes James Corden’s “Late Late Show” signature bit one step further by partnering celebs with other celebs to hit the road and sing, and a clip from the latest episode features an inspired pairing: “Weird Al” Yankovic and The Lonely Island.
In the video, the song parodist who rode to fame in the 1980s with his Queen spoof “Another One Rides the Bus” is joined by Lonely Island members Andy Samberg, Jorma Taccone and Akiva Shaffer for a four-wheeled rendition of his classic Michael Jackson parody “Fat”.
“Sitting next to you while you did ‘Fat,’ I definitely got little kid chills,” Samberg says of the experience of singing one of Yankovic’s biggest hits with the man himself.
In addition to “Fat”, the men also sing Yankovic’s “Amish Paradise” and The Lonely Island’s “D**k in a Box” and “I’m on a Boat”.
Still to come in the latest season of “Carpool Karaoke: The Series” are Kendall Jenner, Hailey Baldwin, Tyra Banks, Jason Sudeikis, Miss Piggy, Quincy Jones, Rashida Jones, Matthew McConaughey and Snoop Dogg.
Just for fun, take a stroll down memory lane and check out the video for the 1988 parody hit.
