WATCH: Dreamy David Beckham Seduces Women And Men While Shilling Burger King Smoothie

Of late, Fast-food joints have been soliciting endorsements from pro athletes. Burger King got David Beckham for an ad for its copy of the McDonald’s “healthy” smoothie craze, which seized the nation last year; Subway has recruited athletes like basketballer Blake Griffin, football player Robert Griffin III and Olympic swimmer Michael Phelps.

In the above ad, Beckham orders a “strawb’rry ba-naaah-na smoothie” from a BK cashier, who, dazzled by his manly charms, is struck speechless. Her male manager snaps her out of it, but then too falls prey to the British ball-bender’s golden aura.

Beckham: turning straight older dudes bi!

And Burger King: playing the “it’s-funny-for-straight-dudes-to-have-a-gay-moment” card way better than Subway.

      Hmm… No one said the male manager was straight! Maybe he was GAY and dreaming of being Posh Spice for a day! Someone’s stereotyping =o.

      I do agree David Beckham’s yumminess is a health and safety hazard, though =). And BK is just as whack as McD’s.

      Wow, writing a story about a commercial that’s been airing for weeks. Desperate for something to whine about, Queerty?

      If this is like McD’s fruity syrupy creation then it should not be taken internally. I used to have respect for Beckham but if he is pushing this stuff to kids, gay or straight, he should be ashamed.

      My reaction would be exactly like the girl’s. Well, her’s and her manager’s.

      I love that commercial. But I’m a sucker for an English accent anyway — love how he says strawberry and byn-na-nuh……

      Well, except for Victoria.

      So now the very act of presenting male to male attraction is considered anti-gay? Bizarre!

      Very funny. We should all learn to laugh. Also thought it was hilarious that they were using the ‘love theme’ from “Airplane”.

      @shannon:
      Exactly how are gays being exploited? Because they’re being convinced to buy a crappy smoothie? That’s called advertising. Are women being exploited as well in this commercial, because it appears to me that women and gay men are being treated the same (also known as equality).

      David Beckham can enchant any person including me. It is nice to know that Burger King is offering some healthy smoothies. Now if they could only come up with a healthy burger that tastes so good, you keep coming back for more.

      @J: I’m w/Pedro and Curtis…WTF, J??? It’s a funny and great commercial. And David Beckham…he really is pretty hot.

      Sometimes there are people who are never satisfied no matter what.

      So David thinks he’s? handsome enough to turn any man gay?

      I absolutely love this commercial and it’s nice to know that David is so open minded. I;ve noticed that depending on what time of day it is or where it’s being shown, the cut the gay innuendo part out of it. “Fresh Fruit” indeed David :) , wink wink.

      @J: , What the hell are you talking about? How sad it is that someone can’t enjoy a lighthearted commercial like this with a gay double entendre, actually it seems gay and bi and straight, so they thought of everyone

      (sigh) Word is out that the Becks is leaving the L.A. Galaxy next month. He promised me I could bear his next child!

      Here’s where I found out: http://www.youtube.com/embed/v6c-COBkCqg — I don’t know if this is old news already, so if it is, please excuse me for rehashing it. But, it’s news to me, and I’m heartbroken.
