David Beckham Gives Beethoven a Football Makeover in Phone Ad (Video)

Michael Cummings@MikeCummings37World Football Lead WriterMay 22, 2012

Earlier this month, we saw what David Beckham is still capable of doing on the pitch for the Los Angeles Galaxy.

Today, in B/R's Viral Video of the Day, we see Beckham doing something even more impressive:

He makes Beethoven cool.

What you're watching here is an advertisement for the Samsung Galaxy Note. (Hey! See how they did that with the Galaxy thing?) If you're not into technology, the Samsung Galaxy Note is a smart phone that allows you to do all sorts of newfangled stuff.

Does that include playing Ludwig van Beethoven's "Ode to Joy" with nothing but your feet, a few footballs and a bunch of tuned drums?

Apparently so.

In truth, this is an impressive display from the 37-year-old Beckham, even if the feat probably needed hours upon hours of photographic wizardry to succeed. Playing classical music with footballs: Who would've thought?

Anyway, it's been a busy period for Beckham, who recently flew the Olympic torch from Greece to Britain, where he was announced as "Sir David Beckham." Before that, he visited the White House, where he received a zinger or two from the American Commander Jokester in Chief.

The Galaxy, meanwhile, are rooted to the bottom of Major League Soccer's Western Conference table.

But that's nothing for a guy who knows how to play Beethoven with his feet. So, how 'bout some Mozart, Becks?
