Ellie Kemper, Nick Offerman, and Thomas Middleditch nuzzle a sumo wrestler with James Corden

Posted on


James Corden has played dodgeball with One Direction, sung carpool karaoke with Justin Bieber, and now… he’s nuzzled a snake with Nick Offerman.

The Late Late Show host had Offerman, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt‘s Ellie Kemper, and Silicon Valley‘s Thomas Middleditch play a few disturbing rounds of a game called “Nuzzle Waaa?” Blindfolded, two of the stars would face off and have to guess the objects they were told to nuzzle with their faces.

Objects in play for the most dangerous game in late night included a live snake, a giant gummy bear, and a sumo wrestler. Offerman, unsurprisingly keeps his cool no matter what is shoved in his face (literally), while Middleditch’s competitive side comes out and Kemper decides to take a mid-competition snack. But Kemper may win for most determined, if her reaction to first nuzzling the wrestler—and then going back for more—is any indication.
