For those who haven’t had the pleasure of indulging in the hilarious videos before, the premise is simple: James picks up a famous passenger(s) and while they change lanes and fight traffic, they make small talk and sing famous tracks.
One of the highlights of James and Jennifer’s uproarious ride together comes toward the end of the video, when it takes an unexpected (but supremely satisfying) turn as Jennifer scrolls through her phone and shows James her contacts list. She reveals she has the numbers of celebrities such as Bradley Cooper, Fergie, Dwayne Johnson and star soccer player Cristiano Ronaldo.
But it’s Leo’s name James sticks on, grabbing her phone and firing off the following suggestive text: “Hey baby, I’m kinda feeling like I need to cut loose. Any suggestions? Let me know, JLo (you know, from the block).”
JLo can’t conceal her distress and tells James, “I’m not gonna let you send that,” but he does anyway. She snatches the phone from his hands and just a few moments later her phone buzzes to life with a too-good-to-be-true response from Leo: “You mean tonight, Boo Boo? Club-wise?”
Aside from their amusing exchange with Leo, JLo and James belt out hits of hers like “Jenny from the Block” and “Love Don’t Cost a Thing.” An undeniable highlight of the video is when they harmonize while singing her 2014 party-ready “Booty.”
We also recommend the brief interlude the two take while JLo shows James how to strike a sultry pose for a music video. After a lesson from JLo, who wouldn’t be ready for a closeup?
They chat up a couple of men in a blue BMW and dive into revealing discussion of their own as well, with JLo admitting she’s been proposed to five times and squashing rumors that she had her butt insured for $1 million.
