Becks turns stuntman

Watch: behind the scenes for H&M

Yesterday, we told you that David Beckham has filmed two adverts with H&M – one of which will air during Super Bowl XLVIII – for his upcoming Bodywear collection. Today, we show you a drool-inducing behind-the-scenes video of the God-like Beckham, scaling pipes and hanging from ropes, clad only in his underpants.

The plotline to this teaser video sees Becks running action-man style around Brick Lane's Old Truman Brewery building, (almost) starkers as he’s been locked out of a photoshoot. He encounters death-defying situations has he sprints across rooftops to regain entry to the set. What a pro.

His semi-naked exploits came as a unexpected delight to Giles Deacon, whose studio is in the The Old Truman Brewery, and his team. Giles kindly shared his surprise view with his Instagram followers.

It isn’t just Beckham’s incredible physique that makes this video impressive, though.

'David did all his own stunts, even if it meant running on roofs or jumping or climbing hundreds of feet up in the air,' confirmed Nicolas Winding Refn, the Danish director of the promo. 'He’s a magnet, you’re moved towards him.'
