David Beckham plays Beethoven's greatest symphony (with footballs)

The English football superstar presents his own arrangement of Beethoven's late masterpiece. Yes, really.

Back in 2012, the nation's favorite midfielder and stubbly fashion icon filmed an advert for a new (and now very dated-looking) Samsung smartphone. And he played some Beethoven on a 15-foot wall of tuned drums.

It may seem as unlikely as an England making it to the quarter finals, but there we have it.

So while you're waiting for football to come home, take a moment to enjoy the mighty theme from the finale of Beethoven's Symphony No. 9, his 'Choral' symphony, but with David Beckham as principal soloist.
