YouTube star Cole LaBrant filmed a special carpool karaoke with his stepdaughter, and the heartwarming clip quickly went viral (video below).
In the clip, described by LaBrant as the “cutest carpool karaoke ever,” the father and his stepdaughter can be seen driving around together singing various songs and dressing in costumes.
“Hey dad, can we listen to the radio?” the girl, Everleigh, asks her stepfather.
“Sure,” LaBrant says, before Turing on the radio and performing songs in various genres. The first song is a Taylor Swift classic, with LaBrant dressing in pigtails and a pink boa. Next, the pair jams to a rap song while Everleigh throws fake money in the air. They then sing a Josh Turner country song while wearing Cowboy Hats and bandanas around their necks.
The performance finishes with a rendition of Drowning Pool’s “Let The Bodies Hit The Floor.”
“What just happened?” Everleigh asks after the last song finishes.
“I don’t know,” LaBrant replies.
Many viewers applauded the duo for creating such a fun video and making people smile.
“That just brightened up my day,” one viewer commented on The Shred’s Facebook page.
“Loved it. Dads spending time with there kids any old way is fantastic.. He did good,” another wrote.
“This is just too cute!!!” another added.
Carpool Karaoke was created by Late Late Show host James Corden and quickly became an Internet sensation. The host spoke to the success of the segment in an interview with Fast Company.
“When you’re trying to put together a show like this, you’re searching for the things that will define it,” he said. “With David Letterman, it’s ‘Top Ten Lists’; with Jay Leno, it’s ‘Jaywalking’; with Jimmy Kimmel, it’s ‘Mean Tweets.’ So Ben Winston and I were thinking, ‘We’re in L.A. All anyone talks about is the traffic. Remember that thing we did for Comic Relief with George Michael singing in a car? “Carpool Karaoke”!’ But we had no idea how popular it would be.”
In the interview, Corden also described his decision to host the now-popular late night show he took over from Craig Ferguson.
‘I think it was Lorne Michaels who famously said that there was no job after talk-show host, but I’m not sure I agree,” he said. “I think that might have been the case back in the linear network world, but now the lines are so blurred. I remember the first time I came to L.A., driving around, having meetings. The feeling was if you want to do movies, you don’t do TV. But now, everyone’s looking for a TV show. And then it was, you can do TV, but you can’t do commercials. And now everyone is looking for their George Clooney Nespresso ad. There used to be TV actors and film actors and theater actors and commercial actors. Now, there are just actors.”
