James Corden recently teased unseen footage of the band, One Direction. He revealed that he and his team have received messages about kidnapping Harry Styles, Liam Payne, Louis Tomlinson, and Niall Horan in the last few months.
The Late Late Show’s producer, Ben Winston, responded to a fan’s tweet from 2017 about the band’s McDonald’s outtakes from Carpool Karaoke. He said that fans will be able to see the footage on the show and shared a snippet before deleting the post.
One Direction fans were not happy with this action by the producer. They said if James and Ben did not deliver on their promise, they will cancel The Late Late Show with James Corden. One fan wrote: “If James Corden doesn’t give us any content we will be canceling the late late show.”
Another one of their fans tweeted that James Corden is yet another example of ‘all men do is lie’ and along with it posted a picture of Louis looking emotional.
Meanwhile, on the show, James began his monologue by revealing how so many fans had told him to kidnap the band and do an episode. He continued that he makes it a point to not read the comments about him or his show. The host said it is a ‘little thing’ that he calls self-care. However, he said for the past couple of months, there is a trend online that he was not able to ignore.
James said, “As you can see I’ve had thousands of comments on Twitter, Instagram, YouTube, insisting that I kidnap One Direction, it’s all my feed is.” He addressed the fans asking if they know the band willingly came to his show. The late night host jokingly said, “And I’m not going to brag but I do have their phone numbers.”
James Received Over 300 Comments to Kidnap One Direction
He continued teasing fans and said, “But maybe you’re right, maybe it’s easier to determine their respective locations, leave my family, fly to different countries all over the world during a pandemic, kidnap them and force them to sing Night Changes in my car.”
James continued that he has asked his digital team to look into it and they revealed that on average, the show has been getting over 300 YouTube comments per week about me kidnapping One Direction. He went on and said the more people ask him to do it, the less likely it is that he will do it.
The late night show host said, “You’re ruining the element of surprise and surprise is a major factor when kidnapping someone. In the history of kidnapping I don’t think any of them have originated from a fan account relentlessly suggesting that a crime take place, and it is a crime.”
James added nothing would give him more pleasure than to bring the boys together. He said he loves them with all of his heart but he cannot commit a crime. The host also says he feels honored to be the person fans want, to bring the band back together.
However, James kept his word and revealed unseen footage from Carpool Karaoke, back when the band was together. In the cut scene, the group order an array of food from a McDonald’s Drive-Thru. Louis even giving back his chocolate milkshake after realizing he didn’t want it.
In another segment, Harry, Liam, Louis, and Niall took part in a dodgeball match and had an amusing time on court while James acted as their coach.
Fans Still Want James To Kidnap or Trick The Band
Despite sharing the unseen footage of the band together, some fans were not happy. They expressed their displeasure with James for refusing to kidnap them and took to Twitter.
One wrote: “@JKCorden kidnap @onedirection I DON’T CARE IT’S A CRIME. You already did it with @JonasBrothers #bring1Dback You can be the manager and everything (sic).”
Another added: “JAMES SINCE YOU DON’T WANT TO KIDNAP THE BOYS HOW ABOUT YOU TRICK THEM INTO COMING ONTO THE SHOW FOR THE SAME NIGHT!! (sic).” While one claimed: ‘James Corden telling us that he can’t kidnap the boys is like our parents telling us the tooth fairy isn’t real.’
James was trending on Twitter since the producer shared few snippets of One Direction.
