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.
