When our blurry sleep-filled eyes read the first part of the above headline our insides got all giddy. David Beckham hawking anti-impotence pills? (*cackle*)
Alas, David Beckham is not willingly selling anti-impotence pills. Rather, the Chinese are being super-sneaky and using the soccer stud’s likeness in a commercial for the drug USA Selikon. In the advertisement, a “badly dubbed Chinese voiceover” talks about using the pills as a “secret weapon to please Victoria” while a reel of David Beckham playing soccer and sitting in a car with Posh is played.
Sean Connery and Keanu Reeves are also voiced over and “talk” all about their pee pee problems for USA Selikon. Sean is still “James Bond forever” with the pills, and Keanu kept all his girlfriends “surprised” after taking USA Selikon.
While it’s unknown if David and Keanu will seek legal action, Sean Connery’s handlers are already on it and assure he will “seek compensation for the damages.”
Chinese copyright law is supposedly tricky and “notoriously complicated.” In fact, David Beckham’s unauthorized face is already behind one of the best-selling brands of condoms in China.
