We have to give The Late Late Show's new host James Corden some credit for doing comedy sketches that are outside the box. Last week, he taped an entire episode in some random Angeleno's home bringing along guests Beck and Jeff Goldblum. This time around, he entertained those stuck in L.A. traffic with a series of Grease musical numbers.

In the show's episode that aired Tuesday night, Corden really got into his role as Danny Zucco donning the signature black leather jacket, along with some T-Birds and Pink Ladies. They ran into the crosswalk at Beverly Boulevard and Genesee Avenue in the Fairfax District, just steps away from the CBS Studios, dancing and singing familiar hits like "Summer Nights" and "Greased Lightning" in full Grease attire. Corden even jumped on the hood of a sports car. While some drivers looked amused, others honked at them to get out of the way when the lights turned green. Come on, L.A. drivers have places to go!
