Beckham in his underpants, eating chips; A Grand Union?!
By Niki Goddard on Tuesday, February 21, 2012
To celebrate National Chip Week (yep, chips get their own WEEK) Soho-based chip shop Grand Union have come up with a spoof video version of the ever-pleasant H&M advert of David Beckham in his underpants.
The cheeky chippy uploaded the video which seemed to show Golden Balls stuffing his face with chips while wearing pants emblazoned with #BeckhamforGU across the backside onto youtube and has already had a considerable amount of hits. The strapline ‘Forget London Fashion Week, it’s National Chip Week’ follows, plays on the fact that this week celebrates two such wildly different events.

It’s a shame that this is likely to be a short-lived campaign, given that H&M and Beckham are less than likely to see the funny side. Fingers crossed that the video goes viral before it can be taken down!
Well done to Truffle PR, who have been handling this.
