Tuesday night’s (Sept. 5) edition of Carpool Karaoke: The Series is a true all-star edition, featuring four sports legends talking about underwear, their most ridiculous product endorsements, nicknames and telling the absolute corniest jokes you’ll hear all year. Plus, you get to see professional wrestler-turned-actor John Cena challenge NBA icon Shaquille O’Neal to a free throw contest.
Now, technically, there is zero singing in the two teaser spots that dropped Tuesday morning, but that doesn’t mean that the dynamic duos of Cena and O’Neal and former NFL player-turned-broadcaster Michael Strahan and NASCAR racer Jeff Gordon don’t get down to some seriously silly business on their spins around the block.
Good Morning America correspondent Strahan plays a game called “What Don’t You Do?” with Gordon, quizzing NASCAR’s famed No. 24 about whether he really endorsed a charm bracelet, mailbox cover and personal lubricant. Meanwhile, Cena and Shaq punch their cards to the Dad Joke Hall of Fame with a rapid-fire round of punny comments. “Empire Strikes Shaq,” Cena offers up as another nickname for The Big Aristotle. When Cena admits he can’t sing, Shaq cracks himself up with the line, “I can tell, Cena Turner!” You get the picture.
