The 'Late Late Show' host was unable to pass up the opportunity for a musical pun.

James Corden can't resist a corny musical pun. And on Wednesday night's (Aug. 9) edition of The Late Late Show he pulled off one of his cleverest ones to date. What do you do when you have Detroit star John Boyega on your show and you happen to be a huge music nerd? Of course you remake Brandy and Monica's legendary 1998 video for their hit "The Boy is Mine" as ... wait for it: "The Boyega is Mine." 

Don't groan, at least not until you watch Corden, dressed in silver silk pajamas, tussling with Transparent star Jeffrey Tambor over their mutual affection for the Star Wars hunk. Pancakes are fed and foot massages are on the menu as Boyega eats up the attention from his suitors. "You need to give it up/ I've had about enough/ It's not hard to see, the Boyega is mine," the men sing. "I'm sorry that you seem to be confused/ But he belongs to me/ The Boyega is mine!"
