Bend it like Beckham? More like slime it like Beckham! The hunky footballer and two of his three sons got royally doused during their appearance at the 2014 Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Sports Awards!
Watch the sliming, Nickelodeon’s very first with a Midas touch, go down in the video above. Romeo and Cruz, the two mini-Beckhams at the July 17 event, were on hand to present their dad with the Legend Award and unfortunately, they got gilded too! Nine-year-old Cruz’s face is particularly priceless as he stares out at the audience, stunned at what just happened.
Somehow David kept his composure (must be all those years under the big lights of the world’s largest stadiums) to flash the audience his signature grin beneath all the golden goo.
Moments before the sliming, David shared a little advice with the audience: “When I was young, my dream was to be a professional soccer player. If you have dreams and you believe in yourself, your dreams can come true. Thank you very much.”
And thank you, David, for still looking smokin’ hot while covered in gold. Anybody else think he deserves another award for that incredible feat?
Keep watching the video above to see the other top moments from this year’s Choice Sports Awards. There’s plenty more slime to come!
