You’d be naive to think that there isn’t a little bit of smoke and mirrors that goes into putting together a great TV show. But even so, one industry secret has just been uncovered online and it’s got us questioning everything!

You know James Corden’s Carpool Karaoke segment that sees him driving around LA with massive celebs as they usually chat, sing and dance in the car on the way to work?

Well one major secret from the set of the show has been revealed by a fan who actually saw James filming an upcoming episode and it honestly changes everything!

While the camera always seems to show James sitting behind the wheel of the car with the accompanying celeb in the passenger seat as they move through traffic, it turns out James isn’t actually driving.

Nope, the car itself isn’t even actually on the road!

Instead, it’s been revealed in a video posted to Instagram that the car is actually attached to a truck which pulls it around!

We’ll give you a second to watch and process this!


The secret was published by Instagram user @zolihonig who seemed just as distraught by the discovery as we feel.

“Saw James Corden and Justin Bieber filming carpool karaoke and this is why I have trust issues – he isn’t even driving!” they wrote in the caption.

At least one good thing that’s come from this bombshell is that we know Justin Bieber is filming another episode of Carpool Karaoke.

Also major props to James for his acting skills for tricking us into thinking he was actually controlling that car for all of this time.

What’s next? Are we going to find out Ellen isn’t actually the one who dances with her studio audience and it’s just a stunt double? Trust issues we tell you…
