Beckham Scores Big on the Beach

Remember the Roger Federer trick shot ad for Gilette? The premise of the video was that Federer was filming an ad for the brand and just so happened to make an amazing trick shot on camera. It got millions of views.

So this week’s top viral ad might seem a little familiar. In this one, David Beckham is relaxing on the beach in the midst of a Diet Pepsi ad shoot. The cameraman challenges him to make a ridiculous shot, and he pulls it off. Queue 3 million views and counting.

What is it about this combination of celebrity and fake vs. real that get people so excited? These aren’t the only two examples, though they’re the most similar we’ve seen. Should we be expecting parodies soon?
