David Beckham Crashes Son Brooklyn's Instagram Video To Brag About Followers

Following in David Beckham's footsteps is a tough gig - even when you're his own son.

All Brooklyn wanted to do was thank his Instagram fans for helping him reach 1 million followers but his father had other plans, crashing the video halfway through to make a less-than-subtle brag.

Reached 1 million followers on my mums birthday. Thank u guys so much #ismydadcoolerthanme

There is a caveat of course - David Beckham doesn't have an Instagram account but was referring to his rather healthy Facebook following.
