James Corden's parents watch 'Game of Thrones' for the first time and it's an absolute riot

You might not know Malcolm and Margaret Corden — AKA James Corden's mum and dad — personally, but after you've watched this video, you'll wish you did. 

James' parents, who live in High Wycombe in the UK, were tasked with watching the first episode of the new series of Game of Thrones. Having never seen a single episode, the pair haven't the foggiest idea what's going on. And witnessing their reactions is nothing short of hilarious. 

Firstly, Margaret is confused at the mention of Sansa, and thinks they're referring to Santa. Then, Malcolm offers up his thoughts on Daenerys and Jon Snow getting loved up in front of a waterfall. 

"Yeah that was like us two growing up in front of the snowy waterfalls of... Bedfordshire," says Malcolm. "But I didn't have a dragon to lure you away with. I just had a Vauxhall Viva."

When Sam Tarly rocks up, Margaret is struck by his resemblance to her son. 

"God, he looks a bit like James when he was younger," she says. 

"I reckon if he auditioned for this show he could play that role," chimes in Malcolm. "Instead of poncing about in Los Angeles. Get some decent work." 

You heard them, James.
