In news that is both unfortunate and painful for Harry Styles and his balls, his appearance in a celebrity dodgeball match for The Late Late Show with James Corden ended with anything but him dodging said ball.
Corden assembled two all-star celebrity teams, with the red team featuring Corden himself and his UK friends Styles, Benedict Cumberbatch, John Bradley and for some reason Reggie Watts, who isn’t from the UK at all.
On the opposing side, the blue team USA featured the former first lady Michelle Obama, Mila Kunis, Melissa McCarthy, Lena Waithe and Kate Hudson. Dream. Team.
The episode aired in the US overnight, with the nation on the edge of their seats as the two teams battled it out on the court to see who would reign supreme. And you know who didn’t? Styles’ balls.
As the match progressed, the red team were slowly picked off until Styles’ was left to go solo (once again). Reggie Watts does a dramatic fall, and then it’s every Styles for himself. Obama comes in with a mean hook and the rest is (a painful) history for Styles and his 1D.
Relive this painful moment below. And after that, watch the showdown in full.
