Now that’s a five-star Lyft ride!

DNCE rode around with some unsuspecting fans throughout downtown Los Angeles streets in the latest installment of Undercover Lyft, shared exclusively with PEOPLE.

Incognito in sunglasses and a newsboy cap, band frontman Joe Jonas kicks the video off by introducing himself as Thomas the driver (and he later takes on pseudonyms “Tom” and “Ricky”). When a passenger tells Jonas she’s going through a “break-up” with her job, he says, “Oh, I was in a band, we broke up, and that was similar, you know?”

Another passenger remarks he looks like Joe Jonas, to which he smiles and maintains his character: “I get that all the time, it’s ridiculous.”

The rest of the band — Cole Whittle, JinJoo Lee and Jack Lawless — is seen clamoring into Lyft Line rides with Jonas at the wheel, taking on their own fake personas like chef and cat fashion designer.

The fun continues when Jonas makes tone-deaf noises as he “works” on his vocal cords for an audition.

And multiple riders are treated to a jam session to the band’s new track “Kissing Strangers” with Nicki Minaj, Whittle playing tambourine to the tune while one passenger is seen keeping up with a shaker.


The unsuspecting passengers unleash their surprise when the band eventually blows its cover, passengers even posing for selfies with the playful band.

Pal Demi Lovato has also played Lyft driver, going undercover as “Samantha,” in August.

“I actually really want to be a singer someday,” Lovato, 24, told one of her unsuspecting passengers in her video.
