[quote]Beckham to be Disney’s Prince Charming

Los Angeles (dpa) - Footballer David Beckham has landed his first big marketing role since announcing his move to the US. He will star as Prince Charming in a Disney advertising campaign for the company’s world famous theme parks, according to a Disney statement Friday.

The ad features the British sporting superstar riding a fire-eating dragon and fighting a fire-breathing dragon.

“There were many Disney characters I liked as a kid,” Beckham, 31, said in the statement. “Now my sons love the Disney characters and it’s a big part of their lives, a big part of many children’s lives around the world. So to be part of that is an honour and very exciting.”

The photo, shot at a lake near Madrid, Spain, by celebrity photographer Annie Leibowitz, is part of a larger celebrity endorsement campaign that also features Beyonce Knowles as Alice in Wonderland and Scarlett Johansson as Cinderella.

The question has to be asked of the Bangkok Post is why is it in the “breaking news” section?

The jump to Los Angeles certainly was a big plus for Wayne Gretzky. It resulted in his career going to new levels and he has done well because of it. A very positive move for him.

Beckham & Company lived the high-life in the UK and been in the media spot-light there, but Los Angeles is gonna be a whole new game.

Buy a box of popcorn and watch it play out.

I saw it first on the BBC news or was it ABC (Australia network) news this morning, they showed the thing being made in Spain … + the revealing of Knight (prince) Beckham on his horse, fightin’ the dragon

A bit over the top…but…
