David and Victoria Beckham are no strangers to making headlines, and this time, they’re poking fun at themselves in a new ad campaign. The power couple is putting a cheeky spin on one of the most memorable moments from their recent Netflix documentary, “Beckham,” for an upcoming Uber Eats advert set to air during the Super Bowl next month.
In a teaser released on Tuesday, the football legend can be seen urging his wife to “be honest” about the details of the commercial.
Victoria, sporting a T-shirt that reads “My dad has a Rolls-Royce,” playfully misstates the name of actor Jennifer Aniston as “Jessica Aniston” and mentions that she will also appear in the ad. “We love Jessica,” the former Spice Girl concludes with a wink.
This campaign is a clever nod to a now-viral scene from the “Beckham” documentary, where Victoria describes meeting David for the first time. According to her, sparks flew when she showed up at one of his Manchester United matches.
However, when she referred to her parents as “very working class,” David sternly reminded her to “be honest.” Victoria then admitted that her father drove a Rolls-Royce at some point during her childhood.
But the Uber Eats campaign isn’t the first time David has playfully teased his wife about the exchange. On New Year’s Eve, he shared a photo on Instagram showing him enjoying a holiday lunch with Victoria and her parents at a luxurious five-star hotel.
In the caption, he quipped, “Very working class. My mother and father-in-law left in their Rolls-Royce.”
Despite the viral moments and playful banter, Victoria has shared that filming the documentary was a “liberating” experience for her.
In a recent Financial Times interview, she mentioned that she usually likes to be in control during filming. However, for “Beckham,” she took a more laid-back approach, allowing the focus to be on David.
