While lip syncing is all the rage, with much thanks to Jimmy Fallon's antics on "The Tonight Show," not to mention the new Spike TV series "Lip Sync Battle" which just churns out viral clips of celebrities each week, this isn't anything new. In fact, one of the more iconic lip syncing scenes in entertainment history comes from all the way back in 1986 from the John Hughes teenage romance classic Pretty in Pink. In that film. Jon Cryer plays the hopeless romantic best friend of Andie (Molly Ringwald), and in one entertaining scene, he enters the record store she works in and lip sync's Otis Redding's "Try A Little Tenderness." And now Cryer has returned to reenact that scene nearly 30 years later on "The Late Late Show." Watch below!
Here's Jon Cryer reenacting Pretty in Pink with James Corden on "The Late Late Show" this week:
It's pretty great to see that Cryer hasn't forgotten how to strut around like Duckie did in the seminal high school flick, and Corden really gets into the scene too. This comes after new "The Late Late Show" host James Corden went viral with his first ever show by reenacting all of Tom Hanks' movies with the Oscar-winning actor himself. It's clear that Corden has a love of pop culture that rivals Fallon's fun on the late night circuit, and if he keeps this kind of amusement up for his audience, he's bound to become a sensation.
