Jessica Alba's Honest Company pranked by James Corden and Ben Schwartz on The Late Late Show

Posted on


During Thursday night’s episode of The Late Late Show, James Corden and Ben Schwartz prank-called Jessica Alba’s company — The Honest Company — to pitch the customer service line various product ideas.

Ben Schwartz, an established UCB alum (and one-time Late Late Show sidekick), had no trouble helping the host pitch some new ideas to a surprisingly patient customer service agent named Hannah.

Using an landline phone with Alba listening on, Corden and Schwartz’s great ideas included “Alba-seltzer” (Alka-Seltzer with a picture of Jessica Alba on it) and the “world’s first reusable condom.”

But Corden and Schwartz really wanted to know if Alba’s company would be receptive to the “ass-tache,” a mustache for the back of the body that directs sweat downward.

“Hannah, think about because I feel like you’re not thinking about it,” Schwartz said. “I need you to think about it before you say no.”

Watch the clip above to see Alba reveal to Hannah that she was listening in on the call and Schwartz admit to being an “Alba-aniac.”
