'Chewbacca Mom' Drives James Corden To Work

By Andrea Park

(CBS NEWS) – James Corden let someone else behind the wheel for once in his "Late Late Show" carpool.

The late night host shared a ride with "Chewbacca Mom" Candace Payne, who became famous last week when a video of her laughing hysterically in a Chewbacca mask went viral.

Naturally, Payne put on her mask and couldn't stop laughing again when she opened her mouth, making the mask emit Chewbacca's signature growls.

Corden was not amused: "I have got places to go. I have got to get to work. Is there any way we can leave now and hurry this up?" he asked.

Payne continued to sit and laugh, as Corden became more annoyed -- but the two of them were soon interrupted by a very special guest: J.J. Abrams, director of "The Force Awakens."

Watch below to see if Payne can muster up the same enthusiasm over a Chewbacca mask a second time (spoiler alert: she can).
