David Beckham's Super Bowl Underwear Ad

David Beckham's Super Bowl Underwear Ad

Fashion fans have waited awhile.

But finally we got to see David Beckham's underwear ad during the Super Bowl. Beckham poses in his underwear to the soundtrack of The Animals' Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood. For more details on the yummylicious ad, read here. 

I predict the tighty-whitey is on its way back.  But that's another column. :)

In other Beckham news, CNN anchor Roland Martin really put his foot in it when he tweeted “If a dude at your Super Bowl party is hyped about David Beckham’s H&M underwear ad, smack the ish out of him!” GLAAD is calling for his swift relase. So Martin tweeted this morning: Martin tweeted this morning, "I made several cracks about soccer as I do all the time. I was not referring to sexuality directly or indirectly regarding the David Beckham ad and I'm sorry folks took it otherwise. It was meant to be a deliberately over the top and sarcastic crack about soccer. I do not advocate violence of any kind against anyone gay, or not."

We know you don't advocate violence, Roland. But even you must see how that statement could be considered dicey.

Oh what a tangled web we weave when we try to mix fashion, football and a little too much machismo.

What do y'all think?

 



About this blog

I’m a Libra so I’m all about pretty things. We of the scales sign know what we like, and our standards are high.

So I can’t help but love fashion – one day I will get that Diane von Furstenberg wrap and those Christian Louboutin shoes.

And fragrances? My favorite right now is Chanel Mademoiselle. As for makeup, can we say MAC?

So let’s thank the Greek goddess of beauty, Aphrodite, that a true fashionista can find everything she needs right here in Philly.

I’ve covered fashion here for six years, and I have traveled to New York, Los Angeles and Paris to write about local and national designers. Let me tell you, there is no place where people wear midnight Eagles green or Phillies red with such wild abandon as they do on the west side of the Ben Franklin Bridge.

Sound familiar? This blog is for you.
