James Corden and Shaggy colluded on The Late Late Show With James Corden to parody the hit song “It Wasn’t Me.” The song was about Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russian investigation into collusion.
Corden played Mueller and Shaggy played the role of Trump. The video opened with Mueller standing outside the Oval Office, singing to Trump.
Mueller sang, “Special Counsel got you sweating like crazy, tweeting that it’s ‘a witch hunt.’ Open up got some evidence ’bout Russia, evidence you should confront. I’m just trying to learn truth and figure out how much you knew. All this time, my investigation never took its eyes off you.”
The video eventually reached the famous chorus in which Trump vehemently denied the allegations, saying “It wasn’t me!” as Mueller asked, “I want to know who conspired, with Russian bots who were hired? Treason may have transpired. I think your pants are on fire.”
Mueller also brought up the alleged “Pee tapes.” He asked, “Shall we talk about the pee tape? We’ve got a copy on replay.” Again, Trump insisted “It wasn’t me.”
At the end of the video, Trump is arrested by the FBI. It will be interesting to see if life imitates art.
