Apple debuts second ‘Carpool Karaoke’ trailer

Based on the segment that has become a global, viral video sensation on The Late Late Show with James Corden, the new Carpool Karaoke series features 16 celebrity pairings riding along in a car together as they sing tunes from their personal playlists and surprise fans who don’t expect to see big stars belting out tunes one lane over.

New series coming soon, only on Apple Music. More information:

Carpool Karaoke will feature James Corden, Will Smith, Billy Eichner, Metallica, Alicia Keys, John Legend, Ariana Grande, Seth MacFarlane, Chelsea Handler, Blake Shelton, Michael Strahan, John Cena, Shaquille O’Neal, and many more celebrities.

Carpool Karaoke is produced by CBS Television Studios and Fulwell 73. James Corden and Ben Winston serve as co-creators and executive producers along with executive producer and showrunner Eric Pankowski.

MacDailyNews Take: This is a perfect compliment to Apple Music and should help draw in those rather elusive new subscribers.

Sleep tight, Spotify.

  1. “We need a bigger car”
    “No, we can make this work!”

    This clearly isn’t targeting 70+ demographics, but all the rest of the folks (younger than 70) will likely enjoy these.

    More importantly, the most important demographic will, with this one, have a very strong motivaiton to sign up with Apple Music (at first for free), and once hooked to this, continue paying.

    1. I’ve been on this site for a long time. I think you are the last person who leaves insightful and intelligent comments.

      Over the last couple years, MDN has overboard with the right wing political commentary. I can’t take it anymore. If you have other suggestions for other places to get Apple news, please let me know.

      Thanks again for your comments over the years. I have learned a lot from you.

      1. That is very kind of you, ‘Yoda’, I appreciate it.

        Some years ago (I believe it may also have been an American election year), I had left MDN for same reasons. I took about a year or so away, getting my Apple news from AppleInsider, looking every once in a while here, and eventually, I returned after noticing several intelligent regulars posting insightful comments.

        It is a bit frustrating to wade through the political diatribes of some of the regular “contributors” here (and I’m readily accepting my share of blame for occasionally engaging them), but there are still intelligent people posting interesting views on things related to Apple and the industry, as well as the society in general. For better or for worse, I’ll keep lurking, and occasionally responding.

      2. Yoda, the fellows who run MacDailyNews may be conservative, but I have found them to be fair and balanced in their commentaries (what they call “takes”), humourous and never abusive. I can’t say the same for the comments that appear below the articl summaries (which are quite the timesaver, by the way) but if you find a thread disturbing, simply skip it. Various tribes like to pitch buffalo chips at each other, but try to think of it as an exercise in diversity and relax a bit.

        MacDailyNews Is the single best news aggregator, and provides stock quotes and web links to other Apple sites, so everything you need is here, provided you tolerate the ruffians the next room over.

  2. I’m not anti-Cook. But this is the biggest, most dumb-assed idea for a TV show next to the dreadful looking Shark Tank rip-off, Planet of the Apps. This was fine as a late night bit. Why on Earth, with Apple’s money, couldn’t they have hired a TV producer with a good track record to create a small slate of TV pilots for shows. They could have spent a few million and had several pilots to test. There’s no shortage of scripts out there that should be produced. Instead they go for disposable reality garbage wit ZERO re-watchability. Who needs another reality show?
