When he isn't driving speedboats or skipping out on Galaxy games, David Beckham is apparently working hard on his second career as an underwear model.
And you know you've made it in the underwear modeling business when 10-foot statues of you in your skivvies go on display in some of the biggest commercial areas of the country.
Metallic statues of the British soccer star in his designer underwear have been put on display in Los Angeles, San Francisco and New York City this week as part of a promotional stunt for Beckham's new line of underwear.
Three statues are in New York and two are in L.A. -- one near the intersection of Hollywood Boulevard and Highland Avenue, the other at the Beverly Center.
The statues will remain on display until the end of the month.
I wonder if they plan to park one of these things outside Staples Center once Beckham calls it a career? They might have to redo the hair, though. It bends more like Bowie than Beckham.
