Is There Someone Hotter Than David Beckham?! Why He Used a Body Double

The soccer stud admitted that the muscles in his sizzling new commercial don't all belong to him. Do we care?

Have you been swooning over David Beckham in his drool-worthy new H&M underwear ad? Well, we've got news for you: It's not all Beckham!

Yes, H&M has confirmed that the 37-year-old soccer stud used a body double for parts of the Guy Richie-directed commercial. So, why would one of the world's sexiest stars, who happens to have a flawlessly ripped physique, need to call in someone else to take his place? Well, it certainly wasn't because he was feeling self-conscious about his abs.

"David was very involved in the advert including doing most of the stunts," a representative says in a statement. "Due to his tight schedule a body double was used in smaller parts of the video."

Beckham also set the record straight, tweeting at a fan, "Hi @lizwren yes I did pretty much all my own stunts, was good fun //Beckham."

Fans and gossip outlets had gotten all up in arms when they first realized that Beckham had used a double, but what's the big deal? There are some decent stunts in the video, which you can watch again below, so it's impressive that Becks did "pretty much all" of them. Plus, it sheds light on the fact there is another male specimen out there who looks that darn good in undies!

Despite the body double revelation, we'd still argue this is a successful ad campaign. It's funny, it's sexy (regardless of the fact it's not 100 percent Beckham) and it shows off one nice pair of briefs. If we can forgive Beyonce for lip-synching at the presidential inauguration, we can sure ignore the fact that Beckham called upon his abs twin for a tiny bit of help with this campaign.
