Viral video: Red Hot Chili Peppers strip off and Barack Obama says thanks

Watch the band do carpool karaoke with James Corden and the president take a potshot at Donald Trump in our rundown of the top online clips

James Corden had a red-hot drive to work when he invited Anthony Kiedis, Flea, Chad Smith and Josh Klinghoffer, aka the Red Hot Chili Peppers, to carpool in Los Angeles. The band stripped off, had a wrestling match, and sang a new song, Heemi Lheemey, during the whacky car trip.

Meanwhile, as Barack Obama nears the end of his presidency, Jimmy Fallon offered to help him write his thank you letters – including one to his birth certificate. And if Obama looks a little confused at times with Fallon’s humour, it’s nothing compared with an unsuspecting nun who entered a train carriage full of Ireland Euro 2016 football fans who serenaded her with the Lord’s Prayer.

We clear up some confusion in our fifth clip with explanations of some complicated movie endings, including Captain America: Civil War, Inception, The Thing, Guardians of the Galaxy and Batman v Superman. We’ve also got an extremely cute but perplexed guinea pig and a beautiful timelapse sequence of images which was the result of many sleepless nights, hundreds of thousands of photos, and countless hours shooting by Paul Richardson. Less beautiful – but worth a laugh – is a movie of Nigel Farage’s Brexit River Thames demonstration in London. Enjoy!
