There are many things wrong with the world, but the problem H&M has decided is most easily rectifiable is the fact that not every single man on the planet dresses like David Beckham. But thanks to its latest TV commercial, we no longer have to settle for such a place.

In the ad below, David Beckham strolls around the city of Lisbon, only to find that no matter where he goes, everyone else — men, women, babies, dogs — happens to be dressed exactly like him. Predictably, it's a far more stylish, highly enjoyable place to live, if only via your TV screen.
