A tale of two Beckham peckers

Hmmm, you’ve reached an older feature - let’s get you up to date! Read our latest features here.

I don’t want you to think me smutty, lacking in refinement, or sophistication. But sod it, have you seen the latest David Beckham H&M undies ads? A tale of two, um, ‘looks’ that I can’t quite get to grips with.

The first ad , above, is classic Beckham – looking purposefully into the middle distance, probably thinking about something important like when his next botox appointment is. Abs tight, tats out, stubble artfully just so. And – how can we fail to see it? – that enormous reason why he’s such a good lingerie model. You’re glad to see us, and David we’re glad to see you too.

Cut then, dear friends, to another shot from the same shoot.


Now, in some tragic photographic accident, Goldenballs has lost his entire nether regional mojo. Not only that, he’s strangely static like an action toy, and his face seems totally blank, as if he’s been cryogenically preservved and then glazed. A superstar pastry if you will.

I like David Beckham. I like his undies. But sorry, with that pecker from Peckham, I can’t fall in love with these ads.

Just me? Or do you agree?!

    Completely agree, in the second shot he looks rather scary! However, the first photo was very pleasant at 7.15 this morning 😉
