The “Late Late Show” host was snapped shooting an episode with Justin Bieber this week, blowing people’s minds when they realized the Range Rover was actually being towed by a truck.

“Saw James Corden and Justin Bieber filming Carpool Karaoke and this is why I have trust issues—he isn’t even driving!” Twitter user @ZoliHonig wrote.
“Next thing you know they gonna tell us that his friends don’t *actually* need a ride,” he joked.
Another person corroborated the story:
Fans proceeded to freak out. “Lol my life was a lie,” one Twitter user wrote. “It should be CARPULL KARAOKE,” said another.
Others pointed out it was a smart choice to put “safety first” so they could be free to concentrate on belting it out.
Corden’s team issued a statement to set the record straight.
“James always drives during ‘Carpool Karaoke,’” the statement said, according to E! News.
“However, on the rare occasion when there is a stunt component and the producers feel it is unsafe to drive, we will use a rig (tow).”
Other Twitter users pointed out that they had seen Corden driving while filming the show:

Corden apparently wasn’t too bothered and added to the drama with another big “revelation”:
