English funny man, James Corden is the host of the “Late Late” show on CBS. His segment “Carpool Kareoke” has become a viral hit around the world commanding millions of views on Youtube. On this segment, James is driving a nice SUV like a Porsche Cayenne Or Ranger Rover of some kind where he is on his way to work and picks up a Random music celebrity to sit with him. The celebrities who have appeared on his show have included the likes of Justin Beiber, Gwen Stefani, Adele and Jennifer Lopez to name a few.
The premise of the show is that James asks the celebrity who is famous for singing if they mind if he puts on some music. The celebrity says no they don’t mind and he cues up and sings along with that celebrity to their biggest hits. This is such a great entertaining way to do a skit! The public loves rock stars, musicians and celebrities and with James being the English boy next door type it makes it funny and endearing. He sings along with every word with so much passion and enthusiasm. The celebrity ends up letting their guard down and singing along with James and giving it their all!
Being a watch guy, I immediately noticed that James Corden was wearing an Audemars Piguet stainless steel Royal Oak 41 mm self winding watch with a black dial as in the picture above with J-Lo. Because he sings so passionately and talks with his hands, its easy to spot this watch. I must say this is the perfect watch for James to wear because its sophisticated like an Englishman while still flying under the radar to the most common person. He usually wears a cool Fred Perry polo shirt and nice trousers.
Even though James is not slim or in the best shape, the watch totally works, makes sense and looks great on his wrist! It shows that he, his stylist or Audemars Piguet have cleverly added this iconic watch in such a visible an intimate setting. It’s very appropriate and thoughtful product placement. Unless it’s a watch that James just wears, he has great taste! To read my full review on the stainless steel Audemars Royal Oak 41mm self winding, click here .
