To be able to make fun of a global icon like David Beckham is a comedian’s dream,” Kevin said in a statement. “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.”

The admiration is clearly mutual, with David having nothing but praise for the Along Came Polly actor. “Kevin Hart is one of the funniest, smartest guys around,” the father-of-four added. “I love to do the unexpected for my H&M campaigns. I hope everyone enjoys watching it as much as I did making it!”

It’s not the first time that David has smouldered on camera for H&M. Earlier this year the football star wowed as he starred in a short clip for the brand, directed by Quantum of Solace’s Marc Foster.

The full clip will debut on hm.com on 28 September. The new Modern Essentials selected by David Beckham Autumn collection will be available in every H&M store that sells menswear from Thursday 1 October.
