When it comes to spoofing movies, James Corden is pretty darn brilliant. Remember this amazing mannequin sketch with Victoria Beckham?
Well maybe you don't, because you're probably all about Corden's Carpool Karaoke series. But you should really do yourself a favor and see his latest viral masterpiece, which features him dressed up as Pennywise the Clown. It's as terrifying as it is brilliant, and we really just can't get enough of it. Anyway, you can understand why it is so chilling if you're familiar with good ol' Pennywise...
You know, the terrifying monster from the book and film IT? Well, Corden wanted to see what an office environment would be like if there was some confusion between the IT Department and It, you know, the pale-faced creature from Stephen King's twisted imagination — and it turns out that it is even better, more ridiculous, and funnier than he probably even dreamed of. Don't believe us?
You can see for yourself:
The clown can't catch a break when he tries to help the poor guy out with his computer issue until the real IT department arrives. How relatable for all of us who work in an office or corporate setting!
What happens next involves exploding blood balloons and unintentional scares from a helpful Pennywise. We never thought that combining a seriously scary horror movie, and the bleak realities of work life would make for something quite this funny, yet here we are. James Corden has really out done himself this time around.
Twitter absolutely loved the sketch, and why wouldn't they?
While others thought he should seriously consider being Pennywise for Halloween this year — because he already nailed the look.
What do you think? Is it a good fit for the TV host?
