The clip showed the group promoting their movie with megaphones and t-shirt guns, singing "Girls Just Wanna Have Fun" and nearly getting into an accident before dubbing the show "Crashpool Karaoke."
While only a little taste of what's to come, comments on the show's YouTube page were concerned Corden himself didn't appear in the at all segment.
Here's just a sampling of the comments:
- It's not the same without James
- I missed James, in this Carpool.... He would have been much entertaining
- Where is James at? He better get picked up later.
- It's not a carpool karaoke without James
- I'm sorry but it's not funny if James is not in it!
- Carpool karaoke is the best with James. They tried to fix something that wasn't even broken.
- Can't watch it without James. Just not fun.
- Two problems with this... Apple Music and No James.... GurlBye.
- They sounded really good and they were pretty funny but it felt really scripted and it is so much better with James. SO MUCH BETTER PLEASE PUT JAMES IN
- So basically advertisement for a movie..... Girls trip... How is this carpool karaoke
