David Beckham Leaps Out At Unsuspecting Photobooth Users For ‘Team GB’ Viral, Makes Kid Cry (Video)

Okay, maybe ‘leaps out’ is a tad over-dramatic. It’s just that ‘Becks repeatedly sidles sheepishly into a photobooth with a rubber duck in his hand’ didn’t make for a particularly snazzy headline. Don’t hate the player and all that…

Any road up, as part of Adidas’ pre-Olympic #takethestage promo, they rigged up a photobooth in a shopping centre next to the Olympic Park in East London for fans to get their photos taken in Team GB clobber and show their support – that was until some Hairy Herbert kept wandering out into every shot…

Aww, isn’t he lovely?

Good stuff, though with Becks’ rootin’-tootin’ facial hair situation (though it’s not nearly as ‘cowpoke’ as it’s been recently) you could be forgiven for thinking you were actually just watching CCTV footage from the ‘Old Times’ wild west photo booth at the Kentucky State Fair.

Now if you’ll excuse us, we’ve got a sudden hankerin’ for a root beer and two fingers of Red Eye to wash down the trail dust.

    Pretty sure I’d be a blubbering wreck myself if I ever met him. What an incredibly photogenic man he is, too.

  2. Bazal says:

    What an absolute legend.

    Agree with Nathan- think id have a little sob of joy as well

  3. plops says:

    Imagine having the ability to make people cry by simply standing in front of them or saying hello!

    I suppose it’s understandable for kids, but wow, adults crying/shellshocked at meeting a stranger. Sad bastards.

    @polops….”Meeting a stranger”…..loooooooooooooool….David Beckham is a living legend.

    perhaps the child’s home was burgled by a man in a david beckham mask and it was bringing it all back.

  6. Toz says:

    I fucking hate United, but David Beckham and his wonder goal from a free kick vs Greece. I’d shake his hand and probably try my best not to seem overwhelmed.

  7. audiodrifter says:

    Legend. And Stuart Pearce is a cunt.

  8. Rob says:

    Looks like they’ve found just the right role for him in the olympics

    Cheaper to have used an effigy…ashhhh those were the days.
    Damn Respect!!

    The kid has probably just discovered his sexual identity and meeting gay icon was a real thrill for him
