James Corden Pulls Off 'Embarrassing' Prank on David Beckham

James Corden Pulls Off 'Embarrassing' Prank on David Beckham

Beckham was shockingly calm about the whole thing, and tried to make the case that the statue wasn't fit to be put outside the stadium, pointing out his horrifying eyes and significantly enlarged posterior.

The host of "The Late Late Show with James Corden" unveiled the stunt on his show Monday night.

The star clapped politely before raising his issues with the actor playing the sculptor, saying: "It's slightly different from what it was when I saw it in Chicago".

Unaware that he was being pranked, Beckham did remarkably well to keep his cool as the artist took him through the finer details of the purposefully very bad mock statue, although he did let his feelings slip on more than one occasion.

But the tension soon faded away when James came running out to expose the whole prank to a very relieved David Beckham.

Chris Klein, one of Beckham's former LA Galaxy teammates and club president, was in on the prank as a video package of Beckham's Galaxy highlights showed some of his lowlights, too.

Beckham's reaction to the statue is priceless. "Look at my chin!" "Yeah, but there was capturing me in motion but also making me... look at my chin!" Look at my bum. Beckham, who hadn't seen the finished product yet, was at the Galaxy's stadium to get a sneak peak in a private showing.

After a litany of disastrous moments and Becks getting to the end of his tether with the ugly sculpture, a careless forklift driver knocked it over completely smashing it to which David - or Dave as we think we should call him from now on - said "I think you've done me a favour there mate".

Then came the main course.
