David Beckham got the internet buzzing with his racy Emporio Armani underwear ads, and the hunky soccer star took to his own blog to talk about the unveiling event for his billboards in San Francisco. He blogs, “Well I’m sure you’ve seen the pictures but last Thursday I went to San Francisco to see the unveiling of the new Emporio Armani campaign I shot a while back. To be honest I was amazed by the huge billboard poster outside Macy’s department store, but even more amazed by the amount of people who turned up to see it! I’m always surprised by the amount of attention certain things create, but the attention this campaign has created is pretty incredible.” What else has been incredible for David? Getting to visit the Golden Gate city, blogging “It was great to meet some of the people who’d come out especially though, I’ve always wanted to visit San Francisco, so it was a great to finally get there…” We’d like to get there and see the billboards! Tell us: Have you seen the Beckham billboards in San Francisco?

I haven’t gotten a chance to see this particular ad yet in San Francisco (I live 45 minutes south of downtown), but I did see a different Beckham underwear ad, also in Union Square, last year.

And boy, it was definitely something ;)

I think David is an awesomely handsome man, and really do think he and Victoria are good people.

Yes I did–I was there for the unveiling and got to see him. Talk about traffic jam! It pretty much takes over the entire front entrance of Macy’s, but it sure looks good!

This building-sized billboard is fabulous… absolutely everything you could dream of and more….my God what a beautiful body this guy has…don’t even care if the pic was airbrushed (I’m sure it was…he has to have some flaw some where). This billboard should be duplicated 1,000,000 times and put up to cover up anything unsightly. It faces Union Square and I studied it for about 5 minutes yesterday. In SF, there were as many men as women admiring, his, um, package. Magnificent.
