James Corden brought Red Hot Chili Peppers into his car for the latest episode of Carpool Karaoke, and let's just say that things got weird. Really weird. Just a few minutes into the segment, Corden and Anthony Kiedis started wrestling on the lawn of a random person's home, and after Kiedis dispatched Corden  quickly, things only got stranger from there.

At one point, Corden asked the group what the most rock and roll thing they've ever seen is. Chad Smith had no problem coming up with a completely ridiculous answer. "We played a festival in Holland many years ago and out in the crowd I saw two guys having a fight with their prosthetic legs," he recalled. "One had a shoe on, the other one didn't. It was very Dutch rock."

Eventually, they got to discussing the band's love of stripping onstage, and Kiedis mentioned how much he dislikes clothes. "I feel a bit encumbered," he said, before deciding to strip off his shirt. Flea and Corden then joined him, and soon the band was half-naked in the car singing along to some of their greatest hits. The entire thing was quite the sight to see, but it wasn't exactly surprising considering RHCP's long history of shirtlessness. It should be noted, however, that Smith and Josh Klinghoffer declined Corden's invitation to go shirtless, with Flea joking that Klinghoffer "puts on all the clothes we take off."
