ON THIS DAY IN 2001:

David Beckham shooting a commercial for his video game, ''David Beckham Soccer''



"The commercial features the England Captain and Manchester United star lying topless in a hi-tech operating theatre. Sensors and monitors cover his body to measure his reflexes and a vertical probe scans his body and his brain 'sucking out'' all his football knowledge and transferring it to a cyber David Beckham with piercing ''android'' eyes and a PlayStation socket in the middle of his forehead."

Video games have a long, strange history of video games sponsoring football teams.

THE LONG, STRANGE HISTORY OF VIDEO GAMES SPONSORING FOOTBALL TEAMS

Aside from the obvious connection—there are famous football video games—football and gaming have another strange association: a long history of companies like Nintendo and Sega appearing as shirt sponsors for some of the biggest clubs in the world. Sometimes, it’s the result of a long-running partnership that has benefited both the team and the company. Other times it’s been a very bad idea for everyone involved.

Pablo Picasso, eat your heart out.

There's a green one (XL) and an orange one (L) but the orange looks more like red? Either way, both are very sick and you should buy one by clicking the links above.
