David Beckham is an international superstar, and with superstardom, comes chat show appearances.
Appearing on the Late Late Show in America, now hosted by Beckham’s friend James Corden, he appeared in what looked like an advert modelling underwear, something he is now very used to.
However he is not used to somebody else sharing the limelight from him in those adverts – something Corden did in this hilarious send-up.
The former Gavin and Stacey star posed in the spoof advert for made-up brand ‘D & J Briefs’ along with Beckham, saying the underwear was “for a man with a great body…and David Beckham.”
While on the show Beckham also spoke about his eldest son, Brooklyn, telling the story about helping him to get his first job. He then also told the take of the 16-year-old’s first date.
“She [his wife Victoria] said ‘make sure you take him, and then make sure you sit in the restaurant,’ so we took him a little sushi restaurant and he sat at the sushi bar whilst I was about five tables back.”
Corden then remarked how it is practically impossible for Beckham to “go incognito,” giving his global status.
All three of his sons, Brooklyn, Romeo and Cruz, are all currently in the Arsenal academy, although Brooklyn is reportedly set to be released by the Gunners at the end of the season.
Beckham has previously trained with the Gunners during his LA Galaxy days, keeping fit in the MLS off-season. He is now a frequent visitor to the Emirates, watching games with his sons.
The former Manchester United and Real Madrid star is also still trying to create his own Miami-based franchise in the American league, although there is currently some uncertainty surrounding it.
Corden, meanwhile, has clearly been enjoying himself in his first week or so as a US talk show host and, along with the skit alongside Beckham, recently took part in some car pool karaoke with Mariah Carey.
Not bad going!
