Your move, Channing Tatum. James Corden and One Direction’s Niall Horan sang about Halloween to the tune of Ginuwine’s ‘Pony’ (best known as that song from Magic Mike) on The Late Late Show on Thursday, October 27.
The music video for “Candy” starts with Corden, 38, dressed as the Caped Crusader as he rings a doorbell. “I’m just a Batman, looking for some Pop Rocks, something that’s sweet inside, you look like the right fun size,” he sings as he raids a woman’s candy bowl and then suggestively rubs a piece over her face.
Next, it’s Horan’s turn, as the 23-year-old — who’s dressed as a pirate, complete with earring — tells a woman, “I’m gonna make your Tootsie Pop.”
The pair then appear in a cemetery and are dressed as corn and a peapod as they sing the chorus, “If you’re scary, let’s do it, give it, my candy. My satchel’s waiting, trick or treat on it.”
After a woman provocatively pours the candy over her head, Corden and Horan, dressed as an astronaut and Dracula, use every suggestive candy phrase in the book. For example: “I’m about to Starburst,” “I’ll give it to you Good & Plenty,” “Girl, you’re just so Red Hot.”
A group of women then rush onto a stage that features male dancers dressed as horror-movie characters, including Frankenstein’s monster and a werewolf.
Later in the video, the pair go to a another woman’s door and Corden holds up a fun-size Hershey’s bar, but is trumped by the pop star, who pulls out a family-size bar.
Watch the video above to see how the hilarious moment plays out.
