    Beckham on Condoms 

    Hot for David Beckham?

    beckhamNow he can be part of your sex life – sort of.

    Condoms bearing Beckham’s image may soon be sold at the gift shop of the Thyssen-Bornemisza museum in Madrid, Spain, according to the Guardian.

    Packaging will be decorated with art works that’ll be on display in the museum’s Tears of Eros exhibit from late October. The exhibit will include British conceptual artist Sam Taylor-Wood’s sleeping David video, which features the professional soccer player.

    Sex and Death

    Tears of Eros will house 119 works and examine “the close relationship between sexual desire and the death instinct,” among other things, according to the Guardian.

    The campaign involving the soccer-player clad condoms has not yet been finalized, but museum sources told Guardian that it’s well on its way. “The condom manufacturers are keen, so we are pretty sure it will happen,” says a museum spokesman.

    Baroness Thyssen, a former Spanish beauty queen whose art-collector husband founded the museum, doesn’t foresee any controversy.

    “I don’t see why anyone should be scandalized,” she says. “It is a way of bringing art and responsibility together.”

    Beckham and Bond Share Impotence Pill Link 

    Japan has always managed to pursue Hollywood or baseball stars to sell their products by making silly television adds in Japanese.

    Now some Chinese marketing gurus have come up with a cost effective way of marketing their products. That is to use existing footage of Hollywood stars or sports personalities and dub them in Chinese.

    English soccer star David Beckham, the “best Bond ever” Sean Connery, Hollywood action man Keanu Reaves have all enjoyed recent dubious celebrity of “endorsing” Viagra style pills to Chinese consumers.


    Footage of Beckham promotes an impotence pill called USA Selikon with Chinese voices dubbed onto the film to show the LA Galaxy star apparently endorsing the product. It is however unclear if Beckham really does endorse the product or will take legal action against the company using his name.

    In the 30-second video, Beckham appears to say: “Want to know how I can keep being strong and running on the football field? USA Selikon capsules help me a lot. “It’s also the secret weapon with which I can satisfy Victoria.”


    If you are surprised to hear about Beckham then you will find it extremely entertaining to see Sean Connery praising the USA Selikon capsules in the movie Indiana Jones.


    However Keanu Reeves takes the prize with the following dialog in an interview “The feelings after my kidneys got washed by USA Selikon capsules are surprising. And my girlfriends were also surprised.”

    A sales manager for the drug manufacturer told Saturday’s South China Morning Post in Hong Kong the advertisements had been approved by authorities and broadcast in cities across China.

    Regardless of what happens to USA Silicon Capsule’s business as a consequence of bogus adverts, Viewers in China appear to have been taken in by these bogus adverts, with people poking fun at the celebrities on online forums for appearing to be reliant on China-made sexual aids.
