James Corden Ran Against Usain Bolt And The Post-Race Interviews Are Pure Gold

The Late Late Show with James Corden on YouTube

This may come as a shock to you, but James Corden is not faster than Usain Bolt.

Neither is Owen Wilson, and neither is anyone on "The Late Late Show with James Corden" staff.

Whaaaat? I know. Hard to believe, but true.

Usain Bolt, proven fastest man alive and winner of three Olympic gold medals in 2016 alone, beat James Corden, "a late night host who spends the majority of his day sitting," in a race.

On Tuesday, Usain Bolt stopped by "The Late Late Show" to compete in a 100m race with James Corden in the CBS parking lot. Owen Wilson was there, also.

Bolt represented Jamaica, Corden represented the UK and Owen Wilson and pretty much everyone else on Corden's staff represented the USA.


Obviously, Bolt won. Significantly.

That's not even really the funny part in this video. The funny part is Usain Bolt really seems to take a lot of pride in the fact he beat James Corden and a bunch of late night comedy writers.

In the post race interviews, Bolt says,

Then he interrupts James Corden's post-race interview to bump into him and say,


Based on Corden's little giggle after that shove, I don't think this moment was planned. I think Usain Bolt really is proud of himself for this.

I kind of love that. He is the greatest, why not flaunt it?

Also, Owen Wilson's post-race interview is pretty great. He says,

Owen Wilson really is a national treasure.
