Look, it’s not that Bob Odenkirk wasn’t thrilled to be on James Corden’s couch, promoting his new movie Girlfriend’s Day – it’s just that he really, really wanted to sing instead.
Corden has invited plenty of people to join him for a round of Carpool Karaoke — a regular segment where the Late Late Show host traps guests in a car and won’t stop circling the CBS lot til they sing a song with him. It’s an Emmy award-winning concept, and while Carpool Karaokes with stars like Adele, Bruno Mars, and Madonna have gone crazy viral, Cordon doesn’t always pick musicians to cruise with – he even had Michelle Obama on.
So, when Odenkirk expresses mild irritation over his totally normal and boring panel appearance, Corden’s defense – “Singing is really key to it, Bob,“ – doesn’t quite hold up.
The only way to settle this? Let Odenkirk audition, of course, because being a bad singer never stopped anyone from trying.
Please enjoy Odenkirk’s very autotuned attempt at “Take Me Out To The Ballgame”:
