David Beckham Gets Pranked When Going To See His Statue For The First Time

Published 7 months ago

As we’ve seen proven time and time again, even celebrities aren’t safe from pranks by their friends – and this time it’s not Ryan Reynolds. Recently, the Los Angeles Galaxy were planning to honor legendary soccer player David Beckham by erecting a statue of him outside the stadium. However, James Corden of The Late Late Show with James Corden decided to prank the soccer player, all complete with annoying fans, terrible highlight reel and even horrible statue that would even make Ronaldo’s look like a masterpiece.

Beckham was completely unaware of the prank and thought the cameras were filming footage to be shared online. The player remained calm during the whole ordeal but you could tell he was about to snap nearing the end.

Beckham hates being called Dave and says only his mother calls him that – so James hired an actor who not only insisted on calling the player “Dave” but also got the name of his team wrong.

Even Chris Klein, the president of LA Galaxy, was in on the prank and was the one that unveiled Beckham’s hilarious highlight reel.

The came the grand finale – comedian Maz Jobrani disguised himself as the sculptor of Beckham’s statue and unveiled the monstrosity. The soccer player looked appalled – he couldn’t believe that after all this waiting, this is what will be put in front of the stadium for everyone to see.

Beckham wasn’t the first one to have his sculpture botched – players like Cristiano Ronaldo, Brandi Chastain, and Mohamed Salah got to experience it too. Naturally, David was worried this could happen to him too.

Although everything turned out alright: “Yesterday was an amazing day,” wrote Beckham on an Instagram post. “To be able to celebrate my time at LA Galaxy with my family, my friends, the team and the fans was an incredible honor. I am so grateful and happy, thank you.”

People loved Corden’s elaborate prank

One day this guy just kind of figured "I spend most of my time on the internet anyway, why not turn it into a profession?" - and he did! Now he not only gets to browse the latest cat videos and fresh memes every day but also shares them with people all over the world, making sure they stay up to date with everything that's trending around the web. Something that always peeks his interests is old technology, literature and all sorts of odd vintage goodness so if you find something that's too bizarre not to share, make sure to hit him up!

Got wisdom to pour?
