Niall Horan & James Corden parody Ginuwine's Pony in Halloween video

Posted on


Never one to be outdone by CBS comrade Stephen Colbert, James Corden unleashed his own Halloween music video on Thursday night’s show.

Corden, too, brought out a musician pal for help, roping Niall Horan in for a Halloween-flavored parody of Ginuwine’s ’90s hit “Pony.” “Candy” begins with Corden dressed as Batman, turning the song’s opening lyrics from “I’m just a bachelor, looking for a partner” into “I’m just a Batman, looking for some Pop Rocks.” The song’s main chorus also got a refresher: “If you’re scary, let’s do it. Give it my candy. My satchel’s waiting, trick or treat on it.”

Corden and Horan switch through multiple costumes over the course of the clip, from corn and peas to vampire and astronaut. In each iteration, though, they danced around a fake graveyard, seductively eating candy and flirting with neighborhood moms.
