After this summer's comment war between Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber, it's pretty clear that a rekindling of that flame is unlikely to take place in 2016. Will that last forever? Only time will tell, but as we're constantly steeped in nostalgia lately, we think about the days when the couple was as cute as can be once in a blue moon.

As we all know, Beliebers and Selenators are among the most devoted fans on the planet. One aficionado of the duo used some expert video editing skills to take us into an alternate reality, in which the two were still together. In the clip, songs from each artist's Carpool Karaoke episodes were spliced together for a simulation that actually made our day.

All on the agenda: The duo grooving along to "Can't Keep My Hands to Myself," lots of giggles, Gomez detailing her daily ginger shot routine, and Bieber revealing his emotions—and they're all things we can actually imagine happening in real life.

Too bad it's just a fantasy ... guess we'll keep our fingers crossed for 2017. And this is also a brilliant idea by the way. Couples Carpool Karaoke? Looks like you have a brilliant idea to get started on, James Corden.
