  • James Corden pranked David Beckham with a hilariously ugly statue

But not always. Every now and then, it's the most elaborate jokes - ones that include hidden cameras, fake statues and a whole host of actors, for instance - that really hit home.

The former LA Galaxy star showed up to his old team's Dignity Health Sports Park stadium earlier this month for the unveiling of a new statue in his honor.

James Corden got David Beckham good with a hilarious prank that debuted on last night's (March 11) episode of The Late Late Show!

"It's slightly different than it was when I saw it in Chicago", David tells a comedian portraying the statue's sculptor.

Up next came a highlight reel of Beckham's biggest soccer feats, which included a few unnecessary "lows", leaving the star shaking his head in disbelief.

Facebook temporarily pulled Warren ads about breaking it up

"It doesn't really look nothing like me though, look at my eyes". "You know what, the only thing that's good is the hair and that's about it. Look at my bum. My parents and wife are coming over", Beckham said to Jobrani.

He then added: "There's no way that can go at the front of the stadium", saying that the long arms made him look like Stretch Armstrong.

Soon after, a forklift driver "accidentally" knocks over the statue, smashing it to pieces. The ex-player still wasn't happy but at least remarked to the guilty party, "You've probably done me a favour there". This one came out looking far more warped than Cristiano Ronaldo's.

And Beckham's reaction to seeing the statue was truly priceless and worth all the effort.

It's not until Corden comes running out to inquire into the crash that Beckham finally realizes he's been had, breaking into a defeated smile and hugging the bestie who bested him.
