Since 2008, the NFL has been slowly ramping up its International Series, in which mostly middling teams play in London’s Wembley stadium to sell-out crowds. The Series’ latest installment pitted the Jacksonville Jaguars against the Buffalo Bills, and to mark the occasion James Corden sent two of his most trusted correspondents to cover the game.

Their names? Malcolm and Margaret Corden. The Late Late Show host’s parents exude the same effortless warmth and good cheer of their son, and watching them encounter the players, locker rooms, and rah-rah spirit of American football is hard to resist.
