David Beckham Trick Shot Video: Beckham Claims It's Real

Lauren FraserContributor IApril 13, 2011

In a recently launched Diet Pepsi commercial David Beckham is shown hanging out on the beach drinking a Diet Pepsi (with a straw!) and then casually kicks three consecutive soccer balls into garbage cans on the beach.  The viral video already has 1.5 million views on YouTube and people are wondering: Is it legit? 

Beckham is in Toronto for a game today against Toronto FC and reporters asked him about the video.  As Daniel Girard of the Toronto Star reports, Beckham said, "Of course.  I spent five or six hours on the beach so I had a lot of time to practise.”  

So Beckham claims he did it—should we believe him?  Were they really consecutive or were they edited in sequence.  We need to ask him a few more questions.  Or maybe he can show us after his game tonight—with Pepsi branding of course!    Either way he is super talented and attractive and I'll keep watching. 

Where can I comment?
