David Beckham: I Have a Feeling Victoria Wants My More Modest H&M Super Bowl Ad to Air

If football’s just not your thing but you need a reason to get excited for Sunday’s big game, we have three words for you: David. Beckham. Uncovered.

The soccer star’s Super Bowl commercial for his spring 2014 H&M bodywear campaign will air during the second quarter. Fans voted on two versions of the ad to decide if they’d rather see Beckham “uncovered” or “covered” — and will have to wait (eagerly, we imagine) to see which version of Beckham doing stunts will end up on air.

“The whole thing is something new, something refreshing,” Beckham told PEOPLE on Saturday at the H&M flagship store in New York City where he greeted 200 lucky fans. “It’s something that’s never been done before. I’m really excited about it.”

So what does his wife, designer Victoria Beckham, think of him possibly baring it all before an audience of millions? “She loves the ad. The boys love it, Victoria loves it,” he said.

But that doesn’t mean she’s been voting for the racier of the two options. “I would have thought she voted ‘covered,’ ” he said with a laugh. “I’ve not asked her so I think she’s probably been online kind of going ‘Covered, covered, covered!’ “

Regardless of how unclothed on television Beckham finds himself Sunday, he’s thrilled to be part of the biggest night in American football. “It’s really exciting. I’ve actually never been to a football game before, so to go to my first one in New York and it’s the Super Bowl, it doesn’t get much better than that.”

You’ll have to wait for tonight to see how America voted (though we have a sneaking suspicion Victoria might not win this one) — but watch the “Uncovered” teaser below and let us know if you have any strong feelings either way in the comments.
