Have you seen it yet? The David Beckham statue prank. As the Los Angeles Galaxy prepare to honor legend David Beckham with a statue outside the stadium, James Corden and the soccer club assemble an intricate plan to prank David with, annoying fans, a half-hearted highlight reel and a statue that falls incredibly below the mark.
Watch the David Beckham statue prank in the video below.
“It’s slightly different than what it was when I saw it in Chicago,” the dismayed star says at one point. “I mean, look at my chin. It doesn’t really look nothing like me. I mean, look at my eyes. The only thing that’s good is that hair and that’s about it. I really don’t see how this can go out. Look how long my arms are. I honestly look like Stretch Armstrong.”
I do wonder though if Beckham is a bit too gullible in not realizing this is a joke or prank sooner….it’s pretty well done though, or very well done I should say in having the LA Galaxy staff involved. This is the city of LA though that Beckham is living in. This is Hollywood.
So many funny elements to this prank, from the actor saying Dave instead of David to the statue eventually being knocked over…one of the better pranks that’s been done in quite a while.
David Beckham statue prank has over 38,330,971 views of so far, which is just an insane number. Corden has gotten his old friend quite good with this prank. But Corden even throws a bit of shade in the comments section too: “Who could ever forget Dave Beckham’s incredible career with Man City. What a legend.”
Of course this isn’t the first David Beckham statue ever created.
What’s really funny though is there was actually an ugly statue/bust of Cristiano Ronaldo made! A year ago, Emanuel Santos’ Cristiano Ronaldo bust was unveiled. The world laughed at him. We challenged him to try again. He accepted.
