Video: Manchester United icon David Beckham stars in hilarious new advert

So it turns out David Beckham is actually pretty funny, he's literally got it all now...

Some footballers are actually pretty nifty at doing things other than kicking a ball around a pitch for 90 minutes, who knew!? 

From Vinnie Jones' 'acting' (we use the term acting VERY loosely there) to Tim Wiese joining WWE and becoming a wrestler – they're all at it.

However, we were a little surprised by former Manchester United hero and England captain, David Beckham. Now, while we love old Golden Balls, we never realised he had a hidden talent.

For what, I hear you ask... comedy!

Yep, Becks has appeared in a brilliant new advert with American comedian Kevin Hart to help promote his H&M brand, and it's absolutely hilarious. 

It turns out the ex-England captain and footballing legend is actually not a bad actor and pretty good at pulling off some well-scripted dry humour – who knew!

We reckon Becks should definitely be given his own TV show, or at least come and do some punditry work and liven up this season's Premier League coverage.
