19 Super Awkward Celebrity Moments That Happened in 2019 (So Far)
When James Corden pranked David Beckham with his statue
James pulled the ultimate prank on soccer player David Beckham, who was visiting Los Angeles for the unveiling of his statue. Since he had never seen the real thing, James decided to hire a crew to create a super ugly version, which would feature a giant chin and a big butt. It took James two months to orchestrate the whole thing and when David finally saw the awful statue, he struggled to keep his cool.
He said: “It doesn’t really look nothing like me. I mean, look at my eyes. The only thing that’s good is that hair and that’s about it. I really don’t see how this can go out. Look how long my arms are. I honestly look like Stretch Armstrong.” After this, the statue was “accidentally” knocked over and smashed into pieces, but before things could escalate any further, James came out and revealed the whole thing was a prank. It was hilarious for sure, but seeing David about to lose his cool was pretty wild.
