At first the actor gets excited at the prospect of karaoke, or grabbing a coffee and telling jokes, before O'Brien breaks it to him: "We're going to blow up the internet. You want to do that?

"Everyone else has done bells and whistles - my thing is we take it back to basics: We just drive."

The trip then begins in awkward silence, before Cruise breaks the ice and says: "I'm open to answer questions if you want to ask me some."

The Jack Reacher star then begins to tell what sounds like a salacious story about his exploits with Jack Nicholson, but O'Brien is busy concentrating on the road and Cruise responds: "Just remind me about that later and I'll tell it."

O'Brien then jokes that he's had his licence taken away for driving under the influence of lots of pills (it's part of the skit) but Cruise is too concerned with London traffic to take much interest.

The presenter then confuses Cruise for Richard Gere in 1982's An Officer and a Gentleman, and when the actor complains about the length of the journey, he unlocks the child safety locks and jumps from the moving car.
