Drake’s lyrics turn sensational when thinking about past loves or the stripper who’s in school. So James Corden chose to inhale new life into every one of those showy jests by making them the content of his most recent soap opera
Corden is joined by Big Bang Theory star Kaley Cuoco and comic Joel McHale in an entertaining fight between two fighting for Cuoco’s love. From “Best I Ever Had” to “One Dance,” Corden and his cast cut up and relegate Drake verses for the dramatic effect
The scene opens on Dr. Corden strolling into a patient’s room. “Last name ever, first name greatest,” he says, before spotting Cuoco and noticing he’d seen her previously. “Is she a patient in my waiting up room?” The sick patient then confirms how they know each other, “You used to call me on my cell phone! Late night when you need my love!”
But things not going so great for Cuoco. Corden holds up her x-beam gravely: “It’s a lot of bad thing ” even some postivity lines from “The Motto” can’t settle. The n the mood changes as McHale strolls in with a “Closer” cut, “Hi haters, I’m back from hiatus. ” He and Corden return in forward with Drizzy’s own particular words that beg to be defended—”Tryna keep it peaceful is a struggle for me “— at one point putting Cardi B in the mix.
This is just recent work from Corden, who has had scripts that came from the verses of Kanye, Taylor Swift, Justin Bieber, and Beyoncé.
Toward the finish of the video Cuoco’s character (who plays “Kiki,” clearly) must pick between her two suitors. “I only love my bed and my momma I’m sorry,” she says as she runs off on both the men!
