The Offspring have launched ‘Cockpit Karaoke’, a jet-fuelled version of James Corden’s ‘Carpool Karaoke’.
The band’s new series sees frontman Bryan “Dexter” Holland and guitarist Kevin “Noodles” Wasserman sing along to some of the band’s biggest hits from inside a private jet flown by Holland, who is a licensed pilot.
“We know everyone’s heard of ‘Carpool Karaoke’, but ‘Cockpit Karaoke’??? No one’s done that!!” Dexter told Spin, which premiered a clip of the duo singing ‘Come Out And Play’, with the “Keep ‘Em Separated Guy” joining them for the ride.
“Since I’m a pilot, we thought it would be great if Noodles and I had some fun and got to sing along to some of our many hits.”
You can watch the first ‘Cockpit Karaoke’ clip below:
