holding the world cup
During the filming of an Adidas commercial named ‘footballitis’ for the world cup. Andy was doubling for David and the set were awaiting the arrival of Zenidine Zidane. He turned up with more security than was expected, even more than David himself. As he entered he was followed by a huge metallic security box. When they open it to reveal what was inside, everybody as shocked.
The World Cup! to many the Holy Grail. Andy was keen to hold it or get a picture with but thought that he would not be allowed. To his surprise the top people in Adidas said he would be allowed. He took it in his hands and gave it a kiss and the on site photographer took a polaroid of him holding it. When the polaroid had dried, Andy approached Zidane and said ‘This year we will take it from you’ he then snatched the photo from Andy’s hand and said ‘ Ha Beckham and world cuppa!!!’. Andy said its one of the best moments in his life.
