David Beckham has been showing off his impressive physique to the public whilst shooting the newest commercial for his latest H&M underwear campaign.
The ad, which is directed by Guy Ritchie, the A-list film director and former husband of Madonna, is set to premiere on February 6, and sees David running through the streets and gardens of Beverly Hills wearing only his boxers.
Discussing the piece, Ritchie noted, “David makes the perfect leading man. For me this felt more than a campaign – it was like directing a short film.”
Beckham then went on to repay the compliment to the director, stating, “Working with Guy has been a fantastic experience. I hope everyone has as much fun watching the film as I had making it.”
Of course, Ritchie has previous turning soccer stars into Hollywood actors. For his debut feature film, Lock Stock And Two Smoking Barrels, he cast former midfielder Vinny Jones in a leading role which helped to propel the former hard-man into the cinematic stratosphere.
Beckham has been working for the high street chain since February 2011, with the soccer star stating that it was ’embarrassing’ watching the commercial that premiered during the Superbowl that year.
The former Manchester United player is still looking for a new club and is currently considering offers from teams in France, Australia, Brazil, and Asia. However, he has come to one decision and that is to base his family in London.
Where do you think Beckham will end up playing? Are you looking forward to his latest advert?
