If you loved the original ads for David Beckham’s Bodywear line at H&M, first seen during the Superbowl, then you’re going to love this news. Earlier this week, 11-foot-statues of Beckham were unveiled at nine different cities across the country!
That's right, lucky New Yorkers, San Franciscans, and Angelenos--your cities will be home to metallic replicas of the soccer hottie himself starting this past Thursday, August 16.
And that’s not even the best part. If you take your photo with the statue and tag it #HMBeckham on Instagram, you could win "one of 100 mini, limited edition David Beckham statues; one of ten pairs of signed David Beckham underwear; and the grand prize which includes $1,000 H&M shopping spree!"
Here's a list of the stores where you can see the bronzed Beckham, and follow @HMUSA for more scoop on when the statue may be coming to a city near you:
New York City:
- South Street Seaport
- FlatIron, 5th Avenue & 23rd Street
- Fifth Avenue between 58th Street & 59th Street
- H&M Store at Lexington Avenue & 59th Street
- H&M Store at Fifth Avenue & 51st Street
- H&M Store at Fifth Avenue & 42nd Street
- Hollywood and Highland
- H&M Store at the Beverly Center
- Union Square
Our Verdict: LOL! This is such a great marketing technique from H&M. We’re obsessed with David Beckham, so I’d definitely get my picture taken with his statue. What do you think, ladies? Is his bod worthy of his own statue? Will you check it out at an H&M store near you?
