The episode, in which the band and the "Dr. Ken" star drive around and sing along to everything from Outkast's "Hey Ya" to the rock band's own "Numb", is a spinoff of the popular bit from James Corden's "Late Late Show".

A somber message appears before the video starts: "With the Blessing of Chester's family and bandmates, we share this episode and dedicate it to the memory of Chester". The episode was not initially set to air out of respect for Bennington's wife and family, but it was finally decided it was time to see the fun-filled and enjoyable show starring the late singer.

At one point Bennington also tries to teach Jeong how to "scring", or scream sing, his trademark on the band's songs, admitting after the actor successfully pulled it off that it was "the greatest day of his life". Because Lilly is really curious, asking 'Daddy how do you write songs? "My daughters love music, and they want to learn how to play instruments". On Oct. 27, the band is celebrating Bennington's life with an event at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles.
