David Beckham Blogs About His "Huge" Billboards

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 ;)

Laura on

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

Suzie on

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!

Kerry on

How you do’in?! LOL!

Allison on

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.

AJ on

Brock on

I have. And: wow. Here are some images from the unveiling:

I saw Beckham’s Billboards online, and he is hot, hot, hot! Also, the stunt-car accident that killed Conway Wikliffe is on People.com, for anybody who’s curious how he really died, etc.?

su on

Rosario on

Holy Smokes – Come to Mama!

jj on

Ok he does have a GREAT face but is it just me he seems too skinny? I like me some LL Cool J

Nicole on

I’m drooling over the little picture posted here with this article … seeing a giant billboard of him would probably cause me to pass out.

Damn! He is HOT!

Billie on

I had an 8 hour conference at the top of the Westin St. Francis (Union Square) today, so I got a great view all day! Beautiful!

david beckam is full of himself. going to san fransico just to see his own billboard. give me a break. what a joke.

Dee Da on

I really am amazed at David’s impressive pysique.
Really impressed. I just don’t like the whole “tighty-whitey/jock-strap thing going on. I mean if I was gay maybe. I am really not digging the whole “Austin-powers” thing. BOYSHORTS is the way to go. It makes me feel better about wearing my thong around him. Ya know?!

Maria Laura on

Me pregunto que se debe sentir despertarse a su lado en las mañana y verlo con o sin ropa…..ver esa perfeccion cada dia.. no se como lo hace Victoria Beckhanm….

Valerie on

It just amazes me how little it takes to excite some people.

amy on

He is quite possibly the most attractive man in the entire world. Next to Leo DiCaprio though hahahaha

Vicky on

Wow that man is extremly hot!!! He looks great.

erica on

heaber on

ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh he’s gorgeoussssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssss x]]

Dave on

It is all a farce/societal prejudice that men can’t be sexy or good looking. when will this change?!?! While women do look gorgeous and sexy, many men also do. Why squirm from this fact?

Socialite Dreams on

look at that body!! the man is a god


Maria on

I accually live in the city and walk by it everyday to go to my workplace. ITS QUITE A TREAT

Night on

Someone tell me why this gorgeous man is married to a cadaver big nasty silicone boobs. How long before he takes a good look at the corpse in the bed next to him and runs away?
Oh David honey…..I’ll be waiting!!!

Stephanie Allen on

I’ve been looking around stylenews.peoplestylewatch.com and actually am impressed by the exceptional content material here. I work the nightshift at my job and it really gets boring. I’ve been coming here for the past couple nights and reading. I just wanted to let you know that I have been enjoying what I have seen and I look ahead to reading more.
