Carpool Karaoke is fast becoming our favourite go-to skit to watch whenever we’re feeling down. We loved watching James Corden and Adele laughing and singing away in their clip – and now we’ve been treated to the latest video, of Coldplay’s Chris Martin taking a ride in James’s car.

The video shows James happening upon Chris at the side of the road, holding a sign and desperately trying to hitchhike to the Super Bowl, where he is performing.

‘Please, man. I'm desperate,’ Chris says, and James finally relents and allows him to hop into the front seat.

The pair then discuss everything from American football (‘At the end of it, they hand out bowls. Some of them are really super. Hopefully they'll give us one after this thing’) to Bruno Mars (‘No one will ever come close to doing what he did at that Super Bowl Halftime Show - very difficult for anyone to match that’) – and of course, sing some of Coldplay’s best known songs, including Adventure of a Lifetime, Viva La Vida, Fix You, Yellow and Paradise.

Perhaps the best bit of all was when Chris did an ah-mazing impression of Mick Jagger, which, when you close your eyes, is indistinguishable from the Rolling Stone himself.

Naturally, Chris had brought along a little keyboard (didn’t you bring one on your latest hitchhiking venture?) and then performed his own special version of David Bowie's Heroes, followed by Coldplay's Us Against the World.

The pair weren’t even able to get all the way to San Francisco – there was a quick pitstop in a roadside motel for pyjamas, nightcaps (actual nightcaps, not alcoholic beverages) and spooning. James Corden was little spoon, BTW.
