'Call me Ricky': David Beckham proves his funny side in Ellen Degeneres show hoax

He's the most famous face in football, internationally renowned for his sporting skills and just as desirable for his model good looks.

But it was David Beckham's sense of humour that came to the forefront when he made an appearance on the Ellen Degeneres Show this week.

The LA Galaxy star proved he's a good sport when it comes to playing practical jokes. More than happy to poke fun at his celebrity status, David agreed to be filmed in a prank on an unsuspecting member of the American public.

The 35-year-old wore an earpiece as he walked into a massage parlour, repeating everything that Ellen dictated to him as he spoke to the masseuse.


"You can call me Ricky", said David, before proceeding to make a series of bizarre yet hilarious requests, all caught on a hidden camera.

From demanding she only use her index fingers "not thumbs" for the massage to singing Happy Birthday at the top of his voice, David managed to keep a straight face before finally revealing the practical joke.
