James Corden gets Alanis Morissette to update Ironic lyrics with first world problems

James-Corden-and-Alanis-Morissette-duet-on-Ironic-update.jpg

Instead of problems like dying the day after you win the lottery or a traffic jam when you're already late (which, ironically, aren't ironic but actually irritating), Alanis Morissette has updated her 1995 hit Ironic with the problems we face today.

On The Late Late Show with James Corden she croons about Snapchat, Tinder and the crushing feeling of no-one favouriting your hilarious tweet. 

And, to top it off, the man himself appears to make it a duet, which is obviously golden. 

It still isn't any more ironic, but watch the video below.
