Kevin Hart and David Beckham have teamed up on a hilarious trailer for H&M’s upcoming Modern Essentials Selected by David Beckham range.

(Cover) - EN Star Style - Kevin Hart impersonates David Beckham in H&M’s new campaign.

The diminutive comedian and world famous former footballer are perhaps the most unlikely people to team up for an advert.

But after the pair teased fans with images from the Modern Essentials Selected by David Beckham Fall campaign on Instagram earlier this year (2015), a trailer has now been released.

In the short clip, David takes a phone call from his manager, who tells him that Kevin wants to play him in a movie of his life, and will be shadowing him to get into character.

David then embarks on the shoot for H&M, with Kevin wearing the same ensembles as the sportsman, attempting to exactly copy his poses.

As the shoot comes to an end, Kevin even follows David home, before copying his British accent as he tells him he will be with him until he gets the character right.

Other hilarious scenes see Kevin attempt to take an ice bath, but jump straight out because the water was too cold.

In a press release announcing the campaign, David said he was thrilled to be given the chance to work with Get Hard actor Kevin.

“Kevin Hart is one of the funniest, smartest guys around,” David gushed. “I love to do the unexpected for my H&M campaigns. I hope everyone enjoys watching it as much as I did making it.”

And the feeling is definitely mutual, with Kevin adding: “To be able to make fun of a global icon like David Beckham is a comedian’s dream. I love fashion as much as I love sports, which is why I was so excited to star in David’s new H&M campaign.”

David has been working with H&M since 2011 and has since created several bodywear campaigns and fronted various ranges for the company.

The new collection will be available on from early October.
