David Beckham and James Corden Strip Down for Underwear Ad Skit

James Corden might have found another career path if his gig at The Late Late Show doesn’t pan out. If this new skit’s any indication, he has a shot in the modeling world.

Corden and retired soccer star David Beckham created a mock ad for a sham underwear line, for which the two were spokesmen. The clip plays out like a video version of a suave Nordstrom ad, rife with stereotypical buzzwords that describe both what some men seek in life and in their boxer briefs, like “supportive,” “cradled,” and “alive.”

Before the final pose, Corden deadpans (and nails) the kicker: “D&J Briefs: It’s underwear for a man with a great body… and David Beckham.”
