Watch Here: James Corden Pranks David Beckham With Hideous Statue of Himself

  • James Corden pranked David Beckham with a hilariously ugly statue

He said the elaborate prank took him more than two months to plan.

David Beckham looked horrified when he was recently shown his brand new statue at LA Galaxy's stadium.

Little did the ex-England captain know that "Late Late Show" host James Corden had swapped the actual statue for a spoof version - and Beckham was less than impressed with his preview of the fake sculpture ahead of its public unveiling.

Corden's goofy statue of Beckham had the Manchester United legend with an extraordinarily broad chin, zombie-like eyes and a petite behind.

"It's slightly different than it was when I saw it in Chicago", a sad Beckham said.

"It doesn't look anything like me, look at the eyes. The only thing that is good is my hair". My parents are coming over from London, my wife (Victoria Beckham) is coming over. "There is no way it can go at the front of the stadium", David explained before attempting to leave the studio.

They held their last four opponents to 109.3 points per game and will need to keep playing well to keep themselves in this game. National Basketball Association favorites of 17 points or more had gone 85-1 in the last 20 seasons, according to ESPN .

"If my kids were to see this, I think they'd just cry!" "I mean, look at my chin".

Just as Beckham appeared ready to walk off in disgust, a forklift driver came on the scene to move the statue, "accidentally" tipping it over and smashing it.

"You've probably done me a favor there", Beckham quips as he somewhat relievedly stares at the splintered remains.

Cristiano Ronaldo wasn't so lucky when a ridiculously cartoon-ish bust of him unveiled at Madeira Airport back in 2017 was actually the real one.

But the tension soon faded away when James came running out to expose the whole prank to a very relieved David Beckham.

Switching the real statue for one that looked nothing like the footballer, hidden cameras filmed the 43-year-old's reaction to the ugly sculpture.
