David Beckham. In nothing but undies. URMPH.

Listen, it’s one thing to stare at David Beckham almost naked in a photo, but it’s a whole OTHER thing to watch him twerk his H&M Bodywear line in action. The seriously famous soccer player/model/Spice Girl husband teamed up with Guy Richie to create a playful short film in which David chases after car that rips a robe right off his chiseled, tattooed body. GULP. (Warning: It ruined me. Like, in the best way possible. My fingers are so tired from clicking the “replay” button on YouTube that they may have fallen off. In fact, I’m not even sure how I’m typing this right now? DO I HAVE PHANTOM LIMBS? IS THIS EVEN REAL?) But, let me back up for a second—as you may remember, we slobbered over his sultry debut black and white campaign photos nearly a year ago, but this time around David said his campaign is celebrating a “new range of colors that echo the action hero theme of the short, with dark navys, reds and utility greens,” which basically means: A.) This is in full color, and B.) David pretends he’s an action hero in it. HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY TO ME, Y’ALL.
Basically, the gist of the video is this: David gets locked out of his house, and after he is disrobed (heh), he goes on a wild goose chase to try and get his clothing back. In the meanwhile, his navy tank top also gets ripped RIGHT off him as he is jumping through some well-pruned shrubbery, and even he jumps into a pool at one point, emerging from it completely wet and (still) perfect. The highlight of the entire video, though, is that tight (heh) shot of his behind when he picks a wedgie. (Sorry, I’m creepy.) But I think I’ve said enough—watch the video below, and let me know what you think!
