Kevin Hart's Hilarious Penalty Shoot-Out Against Man City 'Brother' Joe

Kevin Hart is many things: character actor, comedian and exuberant ball of energy.

Add penalty shoot-out specialist to that list.

Hart and his good buddy Ice Cube dropped into a training session with English Premier League super club Manchester City for a showdown with the comedian's "white relative" Joe Hart.

Hart, of the Joe variety, is City's first-choice keeper and one of the best talents in England. So he's no slouch between the goal frame.

Kevin Hart, playing up to his infectious Hollywood persona, donned a personalised Man City jersey, postured throughout a flamboyant warm-up, took a stance much like Jonny Wilkinson kicking goals for the English rugby team, then told the 'keeper he was going to "bend it like Beckham".

He missed the first shot entirely, much to the delight of the on-looking City squad, and shot his follow-up directly at Joe, before burying his final effort in the back of the net.

He then took a victory lap and asked Ice Cube, holding his phone, "did you you get it? [Nah, I missed it] Well get it because I'm getting tired!"

This isn't the first time the Harts have faced off. Kevin took just one kick to put one past Joe when they last met for a shoot-out in 2014.
