David Beckham sees amusing side after James Corden’s fake statue prank

David Beckham sees amusing side after James Corden’s fake statue prank

Beckham, 43, was all set to receive a commemorative statue just outside the LA Galaxy stadium, and Corden jumped on the opportunity to commission a fake statue of the soccer star, one that emphasized his chin and derriere in a rather unflattering manner. "I mean, look at my chin".

The real statue is a classy tribute Beckham in an unmistakable pose, as if about to strike a trademark free-kick, commemorating his achievements as a two-time MLS Cup victor and his history-defining presence in Major League Soccer.

The comedian and Late Late Show host played a prank on the legendary footballer for a stunt on his late night talk show.

Unaware that he was being pranked, Beckham did remarkably well to keep his cool as the artist took him through the finer details of the purposefully bad mock statue, although he did let his feelings slip on more than one occasion. It doesn't look anything like me though, look at my eyes! The only thing that's good is that hair and that's about it. Beckham, who hadn't seen the finished product yet, was at the Galaxy's stadium to get a sneak peak in a private showing.

The legendary footballer is due to have a statue unveiled at his former team LA Galaxy's stadium, but before the official reveal James decided to make some mischief. I really don't see how this can go out. The ex-player still wasn't happy but at least remarked to the guilty party, "You've probably done me a favour there".

Then came time to finally unveil the statue. and it was hard to tell which Beckham looked sadder between the golden eyesore and the man trying to hide his dismay.
