Joe Montana teams up with James Corden to recreate ‘The Catch’

Friday October 30th, 2015

The Late Late Show host James Corden set out to recreate one of the most memorable moments in NFL history as he tried to re-enact “The Catch” with the help of Joe Montana.

Corden is not quite Dwight Clark when the pair start out, so he needs a few reps before he can pull the ball in, and it does not look quite as acrobatic as the original did in 1982.

To up the realism, the late night host recruits a local 14-and-under football team to fill in for the Cowboys defense, and a trampoline to give him some of the hops he needs to get to Montana’s pass.

After many, many tries the pair finally link up, and Corden gets to show off his Bill Walsh impersonation, and mock his teenaged defenders.
