OMG, you’ll LOVE this Beckham ad!!!


If you read Muddy regularly you’ll know I have a bit of a love-hate thing going on with David Beckham’s ad campaigns. He’s a handsome man and all, but his level of smouldering-under-wrinkled-browness over recent years has been making me feel a bit peaky.

Now Mr Beckham has expressed his intention to go into acting – can you imagine?! – starting with this 6 minute H&M mini ‘film’ promoting the fashion brand’s essentials wear. I thought he’d be hopeless, and it’s true he’s no Marlon Brando in the first minute or so, but after that I have to admit he got a lot better. Admittedly no-one is going to be able to play David Beckham better than David Beckham, so it’s not a massive creative stretch, but it could have been sooooo much worse.  He looks hot in long johns too (hey, it all helps).


Best of all, this little promo is very, very funny, thanks to the conceit (a starstruck American black actor/comedian Kevin Hart shadowing Beckham for a week because he’s up for a role playing the footballer).

Take 5 minutes out of your day and take yourself to this happy place.

    the clothes look great. whatever else anyone says about david beckham – he wears clothes perfectly. the man is a true born coat hanger.

    …..just THE best advert. It slapped a smile straight on my face. H&M sure got that right. I love that DB models for the high street and not some out of reach designer.
