Ronaldo replaces Beckham for Armani

October 10, 2009


So Cristiano Ronaldo is set to replace David Beckham as the new “worldwide testimonial” for Emporio Armani’s Men’s Underwear and Armani Jeans, starting from spring/summer 2010.

Beckham more than tripled Armani’s turnover whilst adverts featuring ‘goldenballs’ sent men’s egos crashing and women’s pulses soaring.I’m a little unhappy to see Beckham’s reign end with Armani, but ladies fear not the news is not so bad – he is set to launch his own brand of underwear, set to hit the shops late in 2010.

I’m not a Ronaldo fan so won’t be that impressed I’m sure by the pictures, infact my reaction is “yuck”. So I will just have to wait for Beckham’s new range before more adverts like the one below (sigh).

    Ah! – just realised…

    He’s just come in from playing cricket and has forgotten to take his box out.

    Phew! I feel adequate once again!

      What is this link? Couldn’t see the connection. Am I being thick?

    Ronaldo just wouldn’t do it for me. God knows where he’s been dipping his wick. I wouldn’t want my man in his pants so to speak. Will Armani get a say in which scrubbers he goes out with?

    I’m taking serious bets that the Adam’s Apple will be airbrushed out.

    To be honest, big todge or small todge, Photoshop or not this is a man against a boy.
    Cast your minds back to Old Trafford October 2001, 92nd minute and up steps big todge to spank in that free-kick. Beckham is a legend, period.
    For the new campaign Ronaldo will deffo need some help from Armani’s design guru’s.
    Lads, forget Armani kecks and try Calvin Klein, trust me you won’t be dismayed.

    So following on from Golden Balls and Twiddly toes, does that mean Michael Owen will be the next photoshopped todge for Armani?

    I’m just sayin…. you know… all that No.7 stuff…. ahha
