David Beckham for H&M's commercial is finally out, but the Guy Richie directed spot does not feature Becks as a superhero, despite earlier reports. No, he's just a guy in his underwear trying to get his robe back.
The commercial starts as his robe gets caught in the door of an SUV filled with three blonde boys and the bulldog shutting the house's door on him. He has to sprint, mostly naked, all over
creation Los Angeles on a terry-cloth recon mission, and nary a hedge, swimming pool, or doberman can stop him. Shop David Beckham Bodywear at your local H&M and hop over the jump to watch Beckham run a lot in his skivvies.
