Birthday video shows Blumenthal in ‘Carpool Karaoke’

February 13, 2019

It’s Sen. Richard Blumenthal’s 73rd birthday on Feb. 13, and one political gadfly wished him a happy day in the absolute funniest way.

Tom Dudchick, who runs political aggregation site CTCaptitolReport.com, posted to twitter a video of late night host James Corden singing in a car next to Blumenthal.

To the tune of “24k Magic” by Bruno Mars.

Sort of. It’s a split screen, but it looks real. At least, it should be real, if there is any justice in the universe.

Corden, who hosts “Carpool Karaoke,” routinely gets famous musicians and singers into the groove as he steers them around.

Famously stolid Bluemnthal is ... less grooving to the beat as he is grimacing.

The comments, of course, range the political spectrum from the less supportive to the utterly amazed.

“This is the greatest thing I’ve ever seen,” Chris Luongo wrote.
