Thank God.

For years, Corden has led us, the trusting public, to believe that he was *the* one driving the "Carpool Karaoke" car.

Turns out, things aren't always what they seem.

MTV

A person on Twitter spotted James filming his "Carpool Karaoke" episode with Justin Bieber, and I'll just say it: The car is being pulled by a truck.

Saw James corden and Justin Bieber filming carpool karaoke and this is why I have trust issues — he isn't even driving!

Yes, a truck, which honestly is smart because I always thought they were gonna die.

People are "disappointed."

This completely random person even called it "wtf."

@zolihonig wait I always thought he was wtf

Buuuut the story doesn't end there.

Universal Pictures

People have been responding to the viral tweet with pictures of their run-ins with "Carpool Karaoke." This person saw James actually driving during the One Direction episode. There was no truck.

@zolihonig Never forget this tragic selfie attempt

James was also driving when he was doing the Katy Perry episode.

I JUST MET KATY PERRY WHILE SHE WAS FILMING CARPOOL KARAOKE WITH JAMES CORDEN

So, basically, it seems like he used to drive the car but doesn't anymore, which, like I said before, is good so nobody dies.

MTV

Thank you to this truck for keeping our precious celebrities alive.

The executive producer of The Late Late Show has referred to these allegations as "not true." He said they only use the rig when they do stunts, 4 out of 50 or so times:

Not true! We only use a rig when we are doing a "stunt" as part of the Carpool - when it would be impossible for James to drive! This has occurred only maybe 4 times in 50 or so carpools... Safety is key! https://t.co/kfJXqZqEHq
