The skit, which aired on The Late Late Show on Monday, features Corden and his house band leader Reggie Watts being replaced on the talk show by a pair of doppelgangers that look just like them.
Corden is shocked to discover that his copy has the same One Direction tattoo on his chest as he does and can also deliver jokes during The Late Late Show's opening monologue.
"It's us," Watts says.
"You mean we," Corden replies. "It's a copyright issue, just go with it."
Corden and Watts eventually accept their fate and begin to enjoy the talk show being run by the clones.
