The more hardcore fans among us know that there are, in fact, lyrics to the original series’ theme tune by Alexander Courage, albeit not written with Courage’s consent. Will Ferrell does not seem to know this, yet he has perfected a note-perfect rendition anyway.
And thus does new Late Late Show host James Corden kick off with something viral-worthy. It remains to be seen if that will be the whole of his shtick, like Jimmy Fallon.
Luke Y. Thompson has been writing professionally about movies and pop-culture since 1999, and has also been an actor in some extremely cheap culty and horror movies you will probably never hear much about (he is nonetheless mostly proud of them, as he met his wife on one). As editor of The Robot's Voice since 2012, he can take the blame for the majority of the site's content, all of which he creates because he loves you very, very much. (Although he loves nachos more. Sorry.)
Prior to TRV, Luke wrote for publications that include the New Times LA, Los Angeles CityBeat, E! Online, OC Weekly, Geekweek, GeekChicDaily, The L.A. Times, The Village Voice, LA Weekly, and Nerdist
