James Corden Pulls One Over On The Infamous Soccer Star

Loves a good prank doesn’t he, James Corden? And to be fair to him, this one is actually pretty funny.

Shown on the ever popular “Late Late Show” this week, Corden goes to huge effort to show Becks up. As he prepared for the grand unveiling of a statue of Goldenballs himself outside LA Galaxy, which he said was a ‘dream come true,’ Beckham was not expecting Corden and his mischievous ways to hijack it.

Under the guise of a final preview, the unsuspecting football icon is brought to LA Galaxy’s stadium, where he meets and greets various fans – all of whom are actors, brought together with the sole purpose of getting on his nerves.

With James chatting in their ears though, the actors continue to press all of Beckham’s buttons – with one bloke standing out in particular.

First he goes straight in with a slur on the team that made him famous. Congratulating him on his career, he says: “Back in your Man City days, it kind of paralleled my career a lot,” to which Becks interjects: “Man United days.”

The cringe doesn’t end there. As the actor continues, Corden – the master of being annoying – says in his earpiece: “Call him Dave, he hates being called Dave.” The usually calm and collected Beckham eventually corrects him, quietly calling him an ‘interesting character’ after he’s walked away.

In comes ex-teammate and close friend Chris Klein for the ‘highlights reel.’ Spoiler: it contains no highlights. In fact, it’s an onslaught of missed free kicks, bookings and on-pitch fights from over his career.

But credit to Becks, he still handles it amazingly well despite looking incredibly awkward. Surely at this stage he must be guessing something’s not quite right.
