David Beckham, Shooting an Ad for H&M

Posted on October 04, 2013

Sometimes, we look at each other and ask, “Do we have the oddest jobs in the world, or what?” Other times, someone like David Beckham comes along and reminds us, “You two don’t know from odd. Trust me.”


David Beckham on the set of his H&M photo shoot in London.


Just a typical workday for a Beckham. Harnesses and underpants.

  • This really is totally gratuitous sausage. I’m not complaining.

    • LuisaNL

      yes. and I’m not complaining either.

  • madge

    umm … why does he have a tramp stamp of his child’s name? bizarre …

    • alyce1213

      Disturbingly bizarre.

    • Silly Grrl

      Oops wrong thread.

    • getouttadodge

      oh darn. You made me scroll all the way back up to look again…. 🙂 but agreed- that space is usually reserved for chicks. (imo)

    • Rhonda Shore

      maybe he just really loves the place where i was born ;-P…

  • mlle

    What are those sock things he’s wearing?

    • vahtel

      Right? At first I thought he had some awful skin disease on his feet.

      • bellafigura1

        They must protect his feet while trying to appear invisible. Like, skin socks.

    • ChristySchiff

      I actually can’t see any part of his body at all when I look at the pictures because of those feet things. For the love of God, what the hell are those things?!?

      • mlle

        The bottoms look like tar. It’s so confusing.

      • ShaoLinKitten

        Funny, I feel the same way about his deeply wedgied ass.

    • Kerri

      He was apparently running across a rooftop as part of the commercial/ad for his underwear. I’m guessing these weird things still make him look like he’s barefoot without the danger of him actually being barefoot on a rooftop in LA.

    • He is to appear barefoot in the commercial. The feet things are protective, yet give the illusion of bare feet.

    • Lori

      It’s gripper stuff to protect his feet and keep him from falling and breaking his million dollar ass if water makes the area around the pool slick. They’re attached with clear adhesive (like “invisible” bandaids) so that in the pictures it will look like he’s barefoot.

    • Silly Grrl

      Hmm, I never made it down to his feet.

    • You all noticed the feet? I had to scroll back up to look.

    • boweryboy

      I’m assuming the photo shoot may also be a video shoot in which he’s running around town in his underwear. So, my guess is they’re flesh toned footsies to give the appearance of him being barefoot with the safety and comfort of shoes.

    • stubbornthoughts

      I don’t know how you all even got to looking at his feet. Couldn’t even tell you if he has ten toes.

      DAT ASS.

  • You. Are. Killing. Me.

    • HomeOfficeGirl

      Agreed!! Why am I feeling sorry for him a little? But this is just some damn funny stuff.

  • hughman

    Aw.. he took inspiration from a butterfly and L’Oreal makeup.

    • HM3

      His nails also look SPECTACULAR.

      • decormaven

        Bu there’s no Mani Cam close up! I’ll never know if there’s a Pinterest nail treatment.

  • imakeart

    Harnesses, underpants, and at one point, hanging by the tshirt.

  • HM3

    I assume–due to a lack of other clothing–that this is a photo shoot for underwear? The fact that he’s continually “re-adjusting” makes me concerned about the integrity of the garment… 🙂

  • random_poster

    That last wedgie shot made me smirk.

    • Jessica Freeman

      Celebrities! They’re just like us!

  • Aidan B

    This is seriously one of the weirdest things I have ever seen. He does get my motor running most of the time but now I’m just cracking up!

  • Jessica Freeman

    This should now be his full time job, and that of the Uncles to do regular post updates of said flying-underwear-man job.

  • MilaXX

    I assume this is another running through the neighborhood commercial. Oh to be a bystander for that.

  • alyce1213

    Look, he’s gorgeous and his body is sick. But there is a point at which there are too many tattoos on a body — sleeves, chest, scattered, tramp stamp — and he’s past it. Just my opinion.

    • It’s a popular opinion. Not mine, mind you, but to each their own.

      • alyce1213

        *Clinking* champagne flutes.

    • DTLAFamilies

      I don’t think it’s too many tattoos so much as “taste issues” as Tim Gunn would say.

      • alyce1213

        Maybe so, like having his kid’s name on his ass?

    • Coolekat

      I know I’m a minority but I am so over massive tattooing.

  • jen

    This is promising to be possibly the best Sausage Friday ever! What will you treat us to next, boys?!

  • Imasewsure

    I like the hand in the pants picture but he just doesn’t do it for me… really don’t like his tattoos either but I’m sure he’ll get over it

  • Mary Lauer

    All I can think is if some guy with a next to perfect body needs to adjust the undies that often, what is a normal person gonna have to do? Not a good advertisement when you see the man behind the curtain picking a wedgie!

    • Isabel

      He’s probably wearing a size smaller for the commercial. Hence,the wedgie.

  • Jennifer McGuire


  • Clueless_Jock

    Love the bondage shots.

  • Erica_Vuitton

    Where does one apply to be his adjuster because he looks like he needs some help.

  • NYCGlamourpuss

    So, thank you, Uncles, for this Sausage Friday! Can I get you anything? Ice cream? Giant shiny presents? Some winning lottery numbers? Just keep posts like this coming…

  • YoungSally

    Harnesses – underpants and equipment adjustments.

  • Fannie Wolston

    boxer briefs? very sensible choice for hanging by a wire!

    • I could be wrong, but I think a much better choice would be a g-string. With red sequins, because I like the sparkly.

      It has nothing whatsoever to do with getting a better look at those apparently very chiseled butt cheeks, of course. 🙂

      But maybe these H&M people do not make sequinned g-strings. If that is the case, I have a massive sad for the future of these ads. And, for the people who shop at H&M because who wants these dirty navy blue coloured boy shorts?

      RED ONES GO FASTER! Even on a harness! But tasteful metallic gold would also be lovely.

    • Denise Alden

      I believe it’s “DAT ASS” 🙂

  • PastryGoddess

    It’s awfully hot in here all of a sudden

  • Jacqueline Wessel

    Love me some harnesses…

    What the hell are those “never nude” shoes?

  • bertkeeter

    How much money and fame do some people need?

    • alyce1213

      Let me scratch my butt and think about that.

      • bertkeeter

        Scatch n sniff? Sorry …just had to!

  • quiltrx

    Woof. Now I’m useless for the rest of the day…that shot of his bottom as he’s pulling off (on?) the tank did something to me.
    Thank you for the delicious sausage, Uncles!

    • jabes

      And he’s got those football-player thighs, too, shown off nicely in the same photo!

  • A few thoughts: 1) hot, slammin’ body, marred by 2) WAY, WAY too many tattoos, land 3) given that he already looks so toned & terrific, why on earth does he need butt cheek enhancing undies?

    • alyce1213

      1) yes, 2) yes, 3) he doesn’t, but he’s advertising them so every man who buys them will think they have dat ass.

  • crash1212

    I cannot fathom a life where even adjusting my underpants is photographed. Ugh. Other than those shots, this is most definitely Sausage Friday worthy.

  • Terri Terri

    For some reason I’m reminded of this guy in the dorms who we dubbed “Mr. Adjuster.” It was constant man-package tinkering !!!

  • Jennifer Peters-Ahnberg

    Okay. This more than makes up for the opening entry of Sausage Friday. Thank-you.

  • roadkill

    dem thighs!

  • Shawn EH

    And flexible monkey feet.

  • majorbedhead

    Unf. What a fine, fine ass. *fans face*

  • Danielle


  • HVM

    Yup, I’d still hit that. Happy Sausage Friday to us all.

  • ShaoLinKitten

    There are no words to describe my gratitute that you posted pics of David Beckham picking out both front AND back wedgies. And a full back view of said wedgie. I’ll be in my bunk.

  • demidaemon

    That hand down the back of his underpants shot is GOLDEN.

  • conniemd

    When I looked at that first picture I was thinking that the caption should read “shooting an ad for S&M” instead of H&M.

    • ShaoLinKitten

      Oh would that it were.

  • marlie

    I’m still trying to figure out WHY with the harness. And with the fake feet.

  • Contralto

    Hate the tats but Becks has quite the tush.

  • LuisaNL

    “harnesses & underpants”. I believe you have just found the perfect name for his autobiography.
    And is it just me or he and Ricky Gervais are looking more alike as time passes. *shudders*

    • altissima

      OMG. No it’s not just you. And I wish you hadn’t mentioned it – once seen it cannot be unseen!

  • Trickytrisha

    Ouch, that must have hurt, thus the hunched over walk? And, wowser… fake feet? I’m, uh… intrigued. By the footies and by the package handling. If he ever needs a part time job, I’m sure UPS would hire him.

    I’m wondering why have tats if they’re undecipherable from 10 feet away? I suppose it’s a thing, but some color on those would make a world of difference, assuming they’re not in color.

  • Krysta

    W. . .hat? What is on his feet??

  • valerie747

    I amend this to: harnesses, underpants and HAIR product! His hair is surreal.

  • Too much ink. In a few years all this ink will run together and he’ll be frantically grabbing long sleeved shirts in an attempt to cover up a horrid mess.

    Mark my words.

  • formerlyAnon

    I waited 2 days to post this, thinking I might change my mind. Haven’t.

    For some odd reason, I look at this body maintained through obvious hours of hard work but still gently softening and think “David. You were a brilliant soccer player and you’ve been a successful businessman who’s mostly parlayed your own considerable physical assets. When you’re ready to back off the gym schedule to 5-6 hours a week, buy that first pair of reading glasses and give up appearing in public in your underwear, don’t worry if Vicky won’t let you bring carbs back into the house. There’ll be plenty ready to open a bag of crisps for you.”
