Tennis legend Venus Williams, newly retired New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski, comedian Ian Karmel and “The Late Late Show” host James Corden joined the Laker Girls cheerleaders in footage that’s now going viral online:
Some people on social media speculated that the stars were filming a segment for “The Late Late Show.” Representatives from the show did not immediately return HuffPost’s request for further information.
Karmel, however, revealed in a video shared on Twitter that it was for an upcoming CBS show titled “Game On,” which will be hosted by Keegan-Michael Key and feature himself, Williams, Gronkowski and actor Bobby Lee.

Karmel, a die-hard Portland Trail Blazers fan, also lightheartedly explained in the video why he donned a Lakers jersey for the bit.
