confused.com: “The Sheep Whisperer” - 40s

James Corden returns to his native land with this triumphant turn for confused.com. Classic tunes are still the order of the day with The Jam's 'Town Called Malice' as soundtrack, although things here are less carpool karaoke and more interpretive dance...

The comedy actor-turned-chat show finds himself stranded on a country lane, path blocked by a herd of sheep. Despite his best efforts, the animals have no intention of moving... at least until he discovers a very unusual superpower.

Corden slips into his 'Smithy' persona here to good effect, giving a funny, natural performance. We particularly enjoy his 'Aw... sheep' line, which is delivered as a disbelieving curse. Entertaining work from Karmarama and the start of a new phase in a consistently strong campaign.
