James Corden just crushed this parody of Ariana Grande‘s smash hit.
It wasn’t different men who taught Corden love, patience and pain. Instead it was Jeff Goldblum! So, Corden had to repay the favor as the Late Late Show host crafted “Thank u, Jeff,” a touching tribute to his “favorite guest” on the show!
He began the parody telling Goldblum often, “Thank u, Jeff” before the video transitioned to Corden lying on his bed in silk pajamas with a Jeff “Love Book” if you will (no burn book here, guys!) The pink scrapbook featured photos of the 66-year-old actor throughout his career with special, heartfelt notes alongside each of the photos. “First saw him in The Fly / but his face was grotesque / Then he won independence from an alien mass / And in Thor: Ragnarok, his performance was classic / But who could forget the hot doctor that he played in Jurassic?”
James sang ahead of the Winter Formal stage performance where he sang the song’s chorus: “He’s our silver fox with black thick-rimmed glasses/ The way that he talks will charm off your a**es.” And guess who played the Cool Mom as Corden sang with glee that he was “so friction’ grateful for his pecks?” Goldblum himself!
And Ariana of course is a super fan of the parody! Watch the hilarious video above.
