In the short, the American actor moves in with former England soccer star David Beckham, in order to learn his mannerisms for an upcoming fictional movie role in 'I, Beckham'.

The mini-movie shows the dad-of-four shooting for his latest 'Modern Essentials Selected' collaboration with H&M, which is duly gatecrashed by funnyman Hart.

The film is David's third with the Swedish retailer, although this is the first time that he appears fully clothed!

“It's always an interesting experience to see someone else's view of how you are," David told H&M Life magazine. "I guess I'm not aware of having a particular pose or look, I’m just being myself. So it's funny to see that my actions and the way I move are also part of my character. I've always thought it was important to not take yourself too seriously, and this campaign is the perfect chance to show why."

"Kevin is so instinctive and spontaneous, and reacts in the moment," he continued. "I had the best time working with Kevin, and had to stop myself from laughing the whole way through the shoot. Keeping a straight face was one of the hardest jobs I've done.”

Meanwhile Kevin joked that emulating the sports icon came naturally.

“It was very easy. The thing that David and I have in common is sexiness. It comes naturally to me.”
