In the last episode of the long-running late-night talk show "The Late Late Show with James Corden," which aired during the week, the guests were none other than Hollywood actor Will Ferrell and singer and actor Harry Styles.
While both guests provided interesting anecdotes and stories about their lives, Ferrell made a lasting impression with a memorable moment that involved a sledgehammer and Corden's desk.
An Unforgettable Goodbye
As Corden and Styles watched in amazement, Ferrell took a sledgehammer to the host's desk, leaving it in pieces and unusable.
“It’s your last show, man,” Ferrell justified. Corden, who has decided to step down from hosting duties after eight years to focus more on his family, replied, “It’s the last show, but it’s not the end of the show.
We’ve still got the show to…” Ferrell, realizing his mistake, responded, “Oh right, yeah, yeah, yeah. No, I didn’t put that together that you want to still use the desk”. Corden, undeterred, assured him, “We can get by without it.
We can figure it out. Hang on. I gotta find your questions”.
A Toast to the Host
Before the desk-smashing incident, Ferrell took a moment to praise Corden for his achievements on the show. “You’ve done such an amazing job coming into the late-night space, such original comedy and to establish your place in America while coming from a s***-hole country like England, coming here and holding your own.
Bravo, great job,” said Ferrell. The episode concluded with Ferrell and Styles playing a final round of "Spill Your Guts or Fill Your Guts," which included daring and unusual food choices such as "bug trifle" and "bull penis," as well as a concoction of "salmon, clam juice, and wasabi." The final episode of "The Late Late Show with James Corden" was a fitting farewell to the host, filled with humor, heart, and unforgettable moments.
Although Corden may be stepping down, his legacy and impact on late-night television will continue to be felt for years to come.
