How They Prank David Beckham With His Fake Statue (Video)

As the Los Angeles Galaxy were preparing to honor their famous previous gamer David Beckham with a statue outside the arena, James Corden and his group developed an elaborate strategy to prank David with frustrating fans, a half-hearted emphasize reel and– the very best of all– a reproduction of the statue that’s absolutely nothing except an abomination.

Uninformed that he was being pranked, Beckham believed the electronic cameras were taping video footage for the club to share online. To his credit, David did incredibly well to keep his cool as the stars did whatever they might to piss him off.

To get him in the right mood, Coden sent in a guy posing as a fan. He kept calling Beckham “Dave” (which he hates) and got the name of his team wrong.

Then LA Galaxy’s president, Chris Klein, showed what was called a reel of “highlights” from Beckham’s career, including missed goals, fights, and red cards.

Nevertheless, everybody has their boiling point. And for Dave, it was the monstrosity revealed in front of him. The “carver” who developed the “statue” (another star) was strolling him around the monstrosity, attempting to talk it up. The devil eyes, the unexplainably long chin, and even longer arms.

Recently, the appearances of football stars Cristiano Ronaldo, Brandi Chastain, and Mohamed Salah weren’t precisely represented by their carvers, to put it gently. The inadvertently amusing outcomes quickly went beyond into memes, so something informs me that Beckham was at least a bit anxious prior to they revealed his genuine statue. However, in the end, he was pleased with the outcome.

“The other day was a fantastic day,” he composed on Instagram. “To be able to commemorate my time at LA Galaxy with my household, my friends, the group and the fans was an amazing honor. I am so grateful and pleased, thank you.”
