- The Late Late Show host, James Corden, played a prank on David Beckham
- He had a horrific fake statue made and presented it to David - his reaction is priceless
- After he found out that it was all just a joke, David found the prank rather funny
David Beckham was the victim of a finely-executed prank by his friend, James Corden, host of The Late Late Show, which took him almost two months to plan.
Beckham was attending the unveiling of a stature made in honour of his service to his former MLS football team, LA Galaxy, when Corden pounced on the opportunity to have a go at fooling Beckham.
According to CNN, the cheeky plot came to mind when word of Beckham not having seen the statue reached Corden, and he proceeded to hire a crew to make his own quaky caricature of the Englishman.
Corden's goofy statue of Beckham had the Manchester United legend sporting an extraordinarily broader-than-life chin, zombie-like eyes and a petite behind.
Beckham's reaction to seeing the statue was truly priceless and worth all the effort.
"It's slightly different that what it was when i saw it in Chicago," he observed with shock in his eyes.
"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 an that's about it. I really don't see how this can go out," Beckham went on.
David was absolutely shocked by the horrific statue, luckily it was all just a prank. The actual statue from his former club is fabulous.
