James Corden Pretends He's The 5th Beatle In Hilarious 'Get Back' Spoof

On “The Late Late Show,” Corden inserted himself into the “Get Back” footage to portray a previously unknown Beatle named Gary Thump.

You may have already spent nearly eight hours watching the Beatles in the new Disney+ documentary “Beatles: Get Back,” but James Corden hopes you’ll watch two minutes more.

On Tuesday’s episode of “The Late Late Show,” Corden inserted himself into the “Get Back” footage to portray Gary Thump, a heretofore unknown “fifth Beatle.”

Thump seems to cause some conflict with his bandmates with off-key harmonies and the suggestion to Paul McCartney that “Let It Be” is not “a banging tune.”

Instead, Thump tries to convince his bored fellow Beatles to record the “diamonds” he’s “spitting,” including “Jerry the Jolly Yogini,” “Omnipotent Jelicoptor” and the catchy ditty, “I Am the Kumquat.”

Still, in full disclosure, Thump tells his bandmates, “I’ve taken an awful lot of drugs.”
