David Beckham Guy Ritchie H&M AdvertLast October Guy Ritchie brought us the entertaining advert for the release of COD Black Ops 2 starring that crazy guy from FPSRussia, Omar Sy and Robert Downey Jr. He must have enjoyed the experience as rather than bring us a feature motion film he has been working on this kinetic advert for the updated David Beckham H&M Bodywear collection to be launched this spring.

This continues H&M collaborating with top tier talent as they have done with Sofia Coppola and Jonas Åkerlund.

In the advert we see David Beckham attempting to retrieve his robe as he chases it through the Hollywood hills to Foster The People's song Color On The Walls, reminiscent of the scene from John Hughes's Ferris Bueller's Day Off where Ferris Bueller (Matthew Broderick) is in a race through his neighbourhood's backyards to beat Principal Ed Rooney (Jeffrey Jones) to his front door.

So were the shots of Beckham in his underwear in the streets last year created to virally seed this campaign? Or is this a spoof of the incident?

“He makes the perfect leading man,” says Guy. “For me, this felt more than a campaign, it was like directing a short film.” In the humorous ads, which debut worldwide on 6 February, David is captured on the streets and gardens of Beverly Hills, dressed only in his boxer briefs. “Working with Guy has been a fantastic experience,” says David. “I hope everyone has as much fun watching the film as I had making it."


Exclusive short film directed by Guy Ritchie to celebrate the launch of the updated David Beckham Bodywear for H&M collection.

Foster The People - Color On The Walls Lyrics
Walk a little walk, smile, talk big thoughts
Gonna tell them all just what I want
That street, two streets, I see you and me
Hanging on the empty swings

Down, high, low, the world, my eyes are closed
I'm Superman and it's my show
One shoe, two, gonna kick with my new shoes
I'm gonna kick until I need new shoes

Yeah, yeah, I said don't stop, don't stop, don't stop
Talking to me
Don't stop, don't stop, don't stop
Giving me things

I run, they run, everybody run, run
And we're all just having fun
Sleigh ride, boat ride, piggy back and ride
I'm gonna them all how I can ride

1, 2, 3, close your eyes and count to four
I'm gonna hide behind my bedroom door
Crayons on walls, I'll color on them all
Right until I've broken every law

Yeah, yeah, I said don't stop, don't stop, don't stop
Talking to me
Don't stop, don't stop, don't stop
Giving me things

Don't stop, don't stop, don't stop
Laughing about it
Stop, don't stop, don't stop

Don't stop
Don't stop
Don't stop
Don't stop

I said don't stop, don't stop, don't stop
Talking to me
Don't stop, don't stop, don't stop
Giving me things

Don't stop, don't stop, don't stop
Laughing about it
Stop, don't stop, don't stop

I said, don't stop, don't stop, don't stop
Talking to me
I said don't stop, don't stop, don't stop
Giving me things

Don't stop, don't stop, don't stop
Laughing about it
Stop, don't stop, don't stop
Me
