James Corden’s First-Annual ‘Late Late Show’ Christmas Giveaway Totally Sucks (Video)

Coffee mugs and dead dogs for everyone

If you’re in the Los Angeles area and enjoy a good talk-show Christmas giveaway, may we suggest Ellen DeGeneres’ “12 Days of Giving”? Or at least, whatever you do, don’t bother with James Corden’s “Late Late Show” version.

On Tuesday, the CBS personality kicked off his first-annual Christmas giveaway — let’s just say it didn’t quite get the studio audience in the holiday spirit. Up first, a very enthusiastic winner had to settle for a coffee mug — it wasn’t quite the fully loaded BMW she scored on “Ellen.”

The next prize actually had some monetary value, but unfortunately it indirectly resulted in the death of a puppy. Merry Christmas, everyone.

Corden saved his top present for last. Even that one sucked, though — see why via the video above.
