The new Netflix documentary, BECKHAM, has captured the attention of viewers across the world. From David Beckham’s original fans to people simply fascinated by the iconic family, the documentary has given us a better insight into the Beckham’s lives.
There is one particular scene in the documentary that viewers can’t stop watching—a hilarious conversation between David and his wife Victoria Beckham.
In the scene, Victoria is being interviewed and she describes herself as “working class,” when she explains what drew her to David.
“I think also we both come from families that work really hard. Both of our parents work very hard, we’re very working class.”
We then see David pop his head in from the other room, telling his wife to “be honest.”
“I am being honest,” Victoria protests, before David prompts her “what car did your dad drive you to school in?”
Victoria doesn’t let up immediately, telling him “it’s not a simple answer” and “it depends,” before David pushes her to admit, “OK, in the ’80s my dad had a Rolls Royce.”
Since the documentary’s release, the clip has gone viral with people not only finding Victoria’s perception of herself as working class hilarious, but the husband and wife banter the pair displayed.
Of course, Victoria was once known as none other than ‘Posh’ Spice—a name she once said she gained because when she was “young and shy” being “posh helped me find my style and confidence, and my voice.”
Of course, Victoria also came from a relatively wealthy background, with her parents being the founders of an electronic wholesales business and growing up in a village in Hertfordshire. Her great-great-great grandfather was also the German artist and revolutionary Carl Heinrich Pfänder, who associated with Karl Marx.
David famously comes from more humble beginnings, with his parents being a hairdresser and kitchen fitter. He also grew up in a working class area of East London.
For this reason, we can understand why he felt the need to give his wife a hilarious reality check.
