This Guy Spent $26,000 on Plastic Surgery to Look Like David Beckham

And he doesn’t.

It’s totally reasonable to want your life to be like David Beckham’s. The soccer superstar is regarded as one of the best athletes ever, he has a reported a net worth of $350 million, and he’s married to the extraordinarily gorgeous Victoria “Posh Spice” Beckham.

That said, a young man named Jack Johnson has spent nearly $26,000 in government benefits in an attempt to transform himself into a David Beckham lookalike. Check out his explanation to the hosts of the British talk show This Morning above.

The only problem is that, as a few twitter users have so kindly pointed out, he looks more like a white Kim-Jong Un than People’s former sexiest man alive

According to the interview, the unemployed Johnson has had his cheek and chin filled, an eyebrow lift, his lips and teeth enhanced, and currently receives monthly tanning injections to “try and get [Beckham’s] skin tone.” 

Worse yet, he admits he wants to shell out another $40,000 to complete his quest, and he believes that when it’s complete, he’ll become acquainted with the likes of celebrities such as Nicki Minaj, Beyonce, and Simon Cowell.

Host Holly Willoughby even probed Johnson with the question that anyone seeking to better themselves through cosmetic surgery should be asked. “Do you ever worry that after doing all of this, spending all of this money, and putting your health at risk, that maybe you should actually just work on you, and learn to love the person you really are?” she asked. 

Johnson responded: “Not really, I’m happy looking like David Beckham.”  

Best of luck, guy.
