Don’t know how you could have missed it (since he’s one of the most talked about celeb/athletes ever), but in case you did, Sharpie has a partnership with soccer star David Beckham that includes TV commercials, print ads, and a promotion where you can win a chance to meet him in person (hurry and enter before January 31, 2009). I was on-site at the TV ad shoot in Los Angeles earlier this year and can I just say he was about as kind and modest a celebrity (did I mention gorgeous) as I have ever met (this includes my former dealings with Punky Brewster, a.k.a. Soleil Moon Frye, Scarlett Johannson, football’s Steve Young, and former President Jimmy Carter, who I personally witnessed work from sun up until sun down building homes for Habitat for Humanity). Anywho…I posted this picture because I thought you should know that David Beckham really does use Sharpie markers to sign autographs. I bet he also wears Armani suits and Adidas shoes – who wouldn’t? These are great brands, just like Sharpie.
