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.
