Poor Dave

Usually I hate these kind of forced celebrity encounters. The joke drags for too long, the famous person in question turns into a jerk, you’re not invested in the prank anyway...who needs that right?

This however, was on a different level. From the prankster in question (None other than James Corden) to the scale and production of the project (LA Galaxy Communications VP Brendan Hannan stated the scene was months in the planning), the clip had us rolling from start to finish. (It must be said Sir David was a real gentleman during the entire ordeal)

We don’t want to spoil it for you so we won’t narrative what happens. Just watch and see for yourself.

As the Los Angeles Galaxy prepare to honor legend David Beckham with a statue outside the stadium, James Corden and the club assemble an intricate plan to prank David with, annoying fans, a half-hearted highlight reel and a statue that falls incredibly below the mark.
