  • Thank u Jeff Goldblum The Late Late Show with James Corden

Corden taps into the internet's obsession with Jeff Goldblum that's been steadily increasing over the last few years with lyrics that fawn over Goldblum's alluring good looks.

On Wednesday night's episode of the late night talkshow, Corden teamed with Goldblum to parody Grande's latest hit.

If anyone on this earth is deserving of a declaration of love in the form of an Ariana Grande parody, it's the internet's favourite daddy, Jeff Goldblum.

Thank U, Next has been on everyone's lips and we ADORE the self-empowering message Ari is belting out. In one scene the Brit wears a silky-smooth pair of silk pajamas, while he peruses his "Burn Book" filled with pictures of Jeff in films like Jurassic Park, Thor: Ragnarok and Independence Day. James sang ahead of his Winter Formal stage performance where he sang the song's chorus.


The host also sang about Goldblum being "a silver fox with black thick-rimmed glasses" and his skill of playing jazz on piano.

Later: "I'm so frickin' grateful for his pecks". Starring Jeff Goldblum and James Corden, no less. She even tweeted at Corden asking for the "thank u, jeff" book as a Christmas present - "for a friend".

I've re-watched the video more times than I care to admit - just wonderful.
