The video was shot by Zoli Honig and shows Corden in his car with Justin Bieber, and they're being towed by a truck instead of actually driving.
Honig said that he shot the footage on Wednesday morning
near the corner of Beverly Boulevard and N. La Brea Avenue in Los
Angeles while sitting at a bakery.
"As we’re sitting there eating I see this Range Rover being towed with a bunch if cameras and | was like, 'oh my god, it's James Corden," he said.
He shared the video on Twitter with the caption, "Saw James Corden and Justin Bieber filming carpool karaoke and this is why I have trust issues — he isn't even driving!"
That set off a flurry of responses from people who were either shocked that Corden wasn't driving, or smugly proud for not being shocked at all.
CBS asked to give the hard facts, and the truth is that everyone is right.
"James always drives during 'Carpool Karaoke.’ However, on the rare occasion when there is a stunt component and the producers feel it is unsafe to drive, we will use a rig (tow)," a spokesperson said.
So there you have it. He does drive, except for when he doesn't.
We learn something every day, and lots of times it’s that what we learned the day before was wrong.
