Harry Styles and James Corden made their way into a random Brooklyn apartment as part of a segment on last night’s (May 26) The Late Late Show to create a music video for the singer’s new song “Daylight.”
The “As It Was” singer and the TV host went knocking on doors in Brooklyn, looking for someone willing to let them use their apartment as a set for three hours and $300. After getting turned down several times, the two eventually found roommates Isabel, Caroline, Hadley and Sydney and sunny apartment as the perfect location for a music video shoot.
As Corden scoped out the place, he found out that one of the girls is a massive fan of Styles and has a collage, a One Direction book and a picture of the singer as Harry Potter in her bedroom. “Be honest, are you a psychopath?” Corden told her. “Harry, don’t come in here! We need to hide all of this.”
As the shoot went underway, Corden went to great lengths to get his desired shots, propping Styles up fully clothed in a bathtub, hitting the roof in a green screen suit and calling on the girls’ friends to join as extras for a staged house party. “I can’t stress this enough. This was all James’s idea,” Styles quipped from the bathroom. “I was in a Christopher Nolan movie! Now this is my dressing room. Should we just scrap it? Is it too late to just do a Carpool Karaoke?”
The complete music video, features Styles doing his best Mick Jagger impression and partying while holding a zebra and eating pizza. Watch below:
