David Beckham Pranked by James Corden With Fake LA Galaxy Statue

In a clip from Monday's The Late Late Show, the former footballer, 43, was less than impressed as he was forced to mingle with annoying fans who were actually actors and then branded the sculpture "embarrassing" and ordered the filming crew to "stop the cameras" at his private viewing.

We've seen that with Cristiano Ronaldo's mangled bronze head, and thanks to James Corden and a very unwitting David Beckham, we now have this glorious scenario in which a truly bung-headed statue is birthed unto the world purely for the sake of comedy.

Corden and the Late Late Show caught wind of this plan months prior, and chose to stitch Beckham up completely by crafting a fake, and very ridiculous, version of the statue, unveiling it to him in relative privacy, and just see how he reacts.

Soccer superstar David Beckham couldn't believe his eyes.

As the time for the ceremony nears, Beckham must give the final thumbs up for the statue to be considered good to go.

It made it very hard for them to play". "We showed what we're about and what we're capable of", Jack Conan surmised in light of Ireland's 26-14 defeat of France this afternoon.

"It's slightly different than it was when I saw it in Chicago", a sad Beckham said. "I mean, look how long my arms are, I honestly look like Stretch Armstrong", he said, still trying to remain polite, but clearly getting increasingly annoyed about it all. It doesn't really look nothing like me. I really dont see how this can go out.

"It doesn't look anything like me, look at the eyes". "You know what, the only thing that's good is the hair and that's about it. Look at my bum".

"My parents are coming from London, my wife is coming over".

Soon after, a forklift driver "accidentally" knocks over the statue, smashing it to pieces. At this point, Corden came bounding out from his perch in hysterics, and the two embraced into a good-natured hug.
