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.
In a dummy ceremony, which Beckham attended believing he was being given a preview before the statue was unveiled to the public, the 43-year-old just about kept his cool when the unflattering likeness was unveiled.
"It's slightly different than it was when I saw it in Chicago", a sad Beckham said.
The proportions aren't quite right
For what it's worth, the actual statue unveiling went off without a hitch on March 3rd, featuring a much more legitimate statue of Beckham which now takes pride of place outside the LA Galaxy stadium. "If my kids were to see this I think they would just cry to be honest".
"Look how long my arms are!" "Yeah, but there was capturing me in motion but also making me... look at my chin!" "You know what, the only thing that's good is the hair and that's about it. Look at my bum".
After a forklift driver "accidentally" destroyed the offending statue, Corden ran out from behind the scenes and surprised Beckham, who laughed and cursed at the late-night host.
Corden is shown directing designers, and then advising actors to rile up the football legend, with one complimenting Beckham incorrectly on his time at Manchester City and calling him "Dave".
