3. Wayne’s World (1992)
Another popular comedy duo, Mike Myers and Dana Carvey, became famous for their headbanging lip-sync of Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody” while driving on the streets of Aurora, Illinois. Maybe this is where James Corden got his idea for Carpool Karaoke.

6. Step Brothers (2008)
If you’re a big fan of Guns and Roses, then you will surely enjoy this scene in the 2008 comedy, which starred Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly.

8. White Chicks (2004)
If you’ve seen this movie before, then you would probably think of Terry Crews each time your hear “A Thousand Miles” by Vanessa Carlton. Marlon Wayans, who starred as an undercover FBI agent, was trying to find ways to get rid of her date by playing a girly song not knowing he’s a huge fan of it.
9. Click (2006)
Terry Crews does a carpool Karaoke again, but Adam Sandler isn’t fond of it. Thankfully, he has a magical remote that can mute anyone. He can also forward the time to avoid getting stuck in traffic. Don’t you wish you had that kind of remote sometimes?
