Many public figures probably cherish a dream of being immortalized in stone one day. On the one hand, it wouldn’t be the same if you order the monument yourself. On the other hand, if you wait for others to do it, you don’t have a say in how an independent artist portrays you.
David Beckham, for instance, was utterly displeased with this ultimate sign of recognition. And there is one person behind this hilarious prank – TV host James Corden!
A bronze statue of legendary midfielder David Beckham was presented on March 3 in a grand ceremony in Los Angeles. It had been commissioned by L. A. Galaxy soccer club, for which David played from 2007 to 2012.
The full-scale sculpture recreates one of the most famous Beckham’s poses.
