David Beckham's Sharpie Ad Campaign


In a change from David Beckham's usual glamourous advertising contracts with Emporio Armani underwear, Police sunglasses and Motorola, David is the global ambassador for Sharpie permanent markers, which are widely regarded as the best autograph marker for celebrities.

Adverts, which are set to air in July, will show David using Sharpie to autograph a variety of unusual items for his fans.

The star has previously said of the partnership: "I have always enjoyed signing autographs for people, especially since I used to love getting my heroes' signatures when I was younger."

That ad has been on in the states - but no Becks in the ad. He doesn't talk, and they don't show his face, unfortunately.

Oh really that's such a bummer :( What's the point of paying him if they aren't really going to use him? Haha!

Hey FC I was looking at you're blogs from 2006, and it's amazing how far this site has come along! You're quite major!

No these are not the ads.

Like I said the ads come out in July. In on of the ads he is featured with a little girl.

He definitely appears in the new ads.
