Pop star Billie Eilish challenged talk show legend David Letterman to a go-kart race in the newly-dropped teaser for his Netflix show My Next Guest Needs No Introduction with David Letterman, which premieres this Friday.

The 75-year-old comedian went head to head with the 20-year-old songstress at the indoor go-kart racing track K1 Speed in Burbank last autumn while she was still platinum blonde.

‘Have fun, be safe. Absolutely no bumping. You know, we don’t want to break anything,’ a K1 Speed staffer warned the pair.

Eilish (last name O’Connell) replied: ‘Because I’m good at this!’

The K1 Speed staffer motioned to the seven-time Grammy winner and said: ‘Last time she was here she crashed into a couple people.’

The K1 Speed staffer witnessed the fender bender and held up a sign reading ‘no bumping’ at Eilish, who was cackling with delight.

After the racing session, David scolded Billie: ‘We’re looking at the [GoPro recording from your helmet]. I hear someone cackling in my head. It’s highly unpleasant.’

It’s unclear if Letterman is actually offended or just feigning outrage at Eilish: ‘Okay, we’re looking at the tape because I think she speared me for the heck of it. The kid should be barred for life.’ 

My Next Guest Needs No Introduction six-episode fourth season will also feature Ryan Reynolds, Cardi B, Kevin Durant, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, and Will Smith (before his infamous Oscars slap).
