Based on the segment that has become a global, viral video sensation on The Late Late Show with James Corden, the new CARPOOL KARAOKE series features 16 celebrity pairings riding along in a car together as they sing tunes from their personal playlists and surprise fans who don’t expect to see big stars belting out tunes one lane over.
The promo spot for the series is a bit of a mashup of all of the performers who will appear, including Metallica repeatedly saying “Master” with actor/comedian Billy Eichner in the car with them. Not only can you spot Eichner and Metallica together in the car, there were reports last fall of Eichner and Metallica entering a Los Angeles supermarket and involving a deli counter worker in their singing. We can now piece together that Eichner’s involvement in that viral moment was tied to the new series. And it appears that “Master of Puppets” will be one of the songs featured on the Metallica episode.
New series coming soon, only on Apple Music.
