James Corden Just Pranked David Beckham With A Hilariously Bad Fake Statue, And His Reaction Is Priceless

David Beckham and Late Late Show host James Corden are old friends, which might explain why James felt comfortable enough to pull a massively embarrassing prank on one of soccer’s biggest superstars.

At this year’s opening ceremonies, the LA Galaxies plan to honor Beckham with a statue in his honor.

When Corden heard that his old pal hadn’t seen the finished version of the statue yet, he couldn’t pass up on the opportunity to have some good, clean fun.

In the clip, Corden convinces Beckham that his statue looks just a little bit more…grotesque than what he was expecting, and Beckham’s reaction is truly a sight to behold. 

Twitter couldn’t stop laughing at the shameless prank!

Many Twitter users were impressed by Beckham’s ability to keep calm after seeing his “likeness.”


All of Corden’s added details truly made a difference to the overall experience.

Though the prank reportedly took months to set up, fans wanted more!

Ideally, people on social media were hoping for some Beckham tears.

But no matter what happens in the future, this beautiful clip of David Beckham’s monstrous statue will be with us forever. Thanks, James, for making this happen!
