Playing EXCLUSIVE: James Corden's Parents Don't Know a Thing About Football, But They're Adorable About It!

James Corden's British parents don't know anything about American football, but that didn't stop them from covering the Super Bowl for The Late Late Show.

"I just don't understand [American football]," James' mom Margaret told ET. "We went to watch one in London, and the nicest bit for me was when we went into the locker rooms at the end. That was the most exciting part for me as a little old lady."

It was the Late Late Show staff who came up with the idea of using his parents, Malcolm and Margaret, as correspondents.

"We were like, 'Who could we send as a representative?' and we thought, 'Let's send two people who know nothing about the NFL," James said.

Malcolm and Margaret drop by for a special edition of The Late Late Show live after the Super Bowl and Stephen Colbert's The Late Show on CBS.
