And let's just say he doesn't quite pass

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ve probably somehow, somewhere, heard the phrase “Bend it like Beckham.”

Yes, it refers to the adorable movie of the same name starring a young Parminder Nagra and Keira Knightley, but it was actually born from soccer star (and Sexiest Man Alive) David Beckham‘s ability to kick a curving shot – usually into a goal.

So since we knew that our newly crowned SMA could indeed bend a soccer ball like himself, we decided to see just what else he could bend.

A spoon? Yes.

“That’d have been embarrassing if I hadn’t been able to do that,” he quips in the clip above.

A putter? Yes.

Though it’s “a waste of a golf club,” he says. (Agreed.)

However a tennis racquet (proceeding a metal pipe) is pretty much where he draws the line. “Wasn’t Chris Hemsworth the last [Sexiest Man Alive]? Thor?” he asks. (Correct!) “I mean, you’re giving me these? I’m sure he could do this ”

See what else Beckham bends (and doesn’t), adorably, in the clip above.
