James Corden had a treat for One Direction fans Wednesday night.
Executive producer of “The Late Late Show” and friend of 1D, Ben Winston, got everybody talking after teasing some previously-unseen McDonald’s footage filmed when the band did “Carpool Karaoke” back in 2015.
Corden eventually gave fans a treat after airing the clip during a One Direction montage, which included hilarious bits from different segments filmed over the years with band members Louis Tomlinson, Harry Styles, Niall Horan, Liam Payne and Zayn Malik. However, some fans were still left wanting more.
The “Carpool Karaoke” bit in question saw the boys pull up at a McDonald’s drive-thru, with each ordering their favourite snacks.
The video was played as Corden spoke out about the many, many requests he’d had begging him to kidnap 1D and have them reunite.
Guys, we all love the One Direction boys–but James isn't gonna commit a multitude of international crimes to get them back together, alright? pic.twitter.com/9Pj0DuXwCg

The clip came after Winston first sparked an online frenzy after replying to a 2017 tweet asking about the previously-unseen footage.
now why would Ben Winston and James Corden reply to a tweet from 2017…unless they weren’t actively searching for it pic.twitter.com/33SA6OS1mD
