Carpool Karaoke is a staple on “The Late Late Show With James Corden,” in which Corden invites various celebrities into his car to sing a few songs and “help him get to work.” However, this fan-favorite segment has proven to be a little bit of a lie. Everyone thought that James was driving the car himself whenever it was filmed but, a video surfaced of carpool karaoke actually being filmed. In the video, you can clearly see that the car James is in is being pulled by another car. Fans felt betrayed, to say the least.

After the initial shock and betrayal wore off some fans agreed that it makes total sense that he doesn’t actually drive as they film it. After all, he sings, dances, and does various other comedy bits that would be pretty difficult if he was actually driving. Some were even glad to see the process and were relieved that many of their favorite celebs weren’t actually in the hands of James Corden’s driving skills.

I'm shocked people didn't assume this is exactly how Carpool Karaoke is filmed. You think James Corden's driving a car with the world's most famous people in it?
"James, you crashed and killed Gaga."
"Sorry! My eyes were closed when the Shallow chorus came on."
Fuck outta here. https://t.co/pLDldG7xNK

Some fans even pointed out that no one questioned this in the Stevie Wonder carpool karaoke episode. Were we all supposed to believe that Stevie Wonder was driving while blind?
Producer: We’re actually gonna drive today.

Despite the drama, I think we can all agree that we’re gonna keep enjoying carpool karaoke whether James is driving or not.
