With great power comes great responsibility, and if you ever doubted that, just take a look at this promotional video that Adidas put together. Shot at the Westfield Stratford City mall, shoppers were asked to go into a photo booth to have a few pictures taken to support Great Britain in the Olympics. But to their shock and awe, David Beckham showed up to get in on the photo.
It’s hard to imagine what it must feel like when the very sight of you causes people to totally lose it. Those who understand the gravity of that, as Beckham seems to, know that being a role model is a real thing, a sacred trust. What an opportunity — to be able to change lives just by showing up. You win the internet today, Beckham.
