#FlashBackFriday – Appreciating David Beckham’s Big, Beautiful…Watch

David Beckham and his big, bodacious…watch

Let’s face it: former professional footballer and all-around hottie David Beckham is eye-candy for the ages.

And here’s some #FBF action to prove it.

A thread over at Reddit’s r/gay chat recently discovered this eye-catching meme from a while ago highlighting Beckham’s bodacious backside watch. How did I miss this???

The pic of Beckham’s “watch” went viral when an eagle-eyed fan zoomed in on the legendary footballer’s timepiece from Tudor Watches. It turns out the 44-year-old is an ambassador for the brand and wears their Black Bay Bronze diver’s watch.

But in close-up, many found something much more interesting to focus on.

The meme is fun, but so are the comments by the thirsty Redditors.

Here are just some of the comments from the gays of Reddit showing their appreciation for Beckham’s big, fat, wonderful ‘watch:’

“He has such a nice…watch.”

“I need to do things to that watch.”

“I want to eat that watch.”

“It’s a very form-fitting watch.”

“The watch was literally the last thing I noticed.”

“What watch?”

“Goddamn, he’s got a watch you could bounce a quarter off of. That watch is so nice I wouldn’t mind adjusting it a little bit, and I’m a complete bottom.”

But the winner for best response just might have to be:

“Takes a licking and keeps on ticking.”

And while we’re here, let’s take a quick trip through some of dashing David’s Instagram for some holiday inspiration and woofy goodness. Happy Friday!

Instagram: Celebs With the Highest Average Number Of “Like” Per Post

Former UK pro footballer David Beckham

Instagram is easily the most popular social media platform currently in the game.

Back in December of 2016, Instagram crossed the mind-blowing threshold of 600 million users. Of those, around 55% are age 18-29.

And we know how young folks love to follow the escapades of famous athletes, musicians, and reality TV stars.

A study conducted by Project Know looked into how celebrity Instagram posts affect their young followers, and in doing so, found some astounding numbers.

Surprisingly, the data showed that the most-followed users aren’t always the one getting the most engagement on their posts.

Check the stats below which show that Selena Gomez, the most-followed person on Instagram with an eye-popping 115 million followers, doesn’t average nearly the most “Likes” per post.

Instead, one of the world’s most famous soccer players gets that honor.

Here are the 15 artists, entertainers, and athletes with the highest number of likes on average.

People Names David Beckham 2015 “Sexiest Man Alive”

For it’s 30th annual installment of the “Sexiest Man Alive” titles, People Magazine has named former soccer great David Beckham as the title holder for 2015.

“It’s a huge honor,” Beckham, 40, tells PEOPLE of scoring our 30th anniversary Sexiest Man crown. “And I’m very pleased to accept.”

“I never feel that I’m an attractive, sexy person,” he says in this week’s cover story. “I mean I like to wear nice clothes and nice suits and look and feel good, but I don’t ever think of myself that way.”

Still, when Beckham shared the news with his wife, fashion mogul Victoria Beckham, 41, she was totally on-board.

“I would hope that she feels this way about me all the time anyway!” he says with a shy smile. “But she said, ‘Congratulations!’ ”

“We kind of laughed about it with the boys and the boys kind of laughed at me and said, ‘Really?! Sexiest man alive? Really?’ ”

People’s “Sexiest Man Alive” issue goes on sale this Friday.

David Beckham’s new short film featuring his underwear line

David Beckham, his H&M underwear line and his famous body are all on display in this new “short film” by Guy Ritchie.

After his robe gets caught in a car door, Beckham goes in chase of said robe. Along the way, his clothes – of course – are ripped off by various obstacles until he’s left wet and nearly naked in the streets of Beverly Hills.

Just another day for Mr. Beckham and LA.

Happy viewing!

President Obama teases David Beckham about his age and underwear line

President Obama welcomed the L.A. Galaxy pro soccer team to the White House today and singled out David Beckham about his age, as well as his fashion sense, Politico reports.

“Half his teammates could be his kids,” said Obama, adding, “It is a rare man who can be that tough on the field and also have his own line of underwear. David Beckham is that man.”

As much as I like seeing Beckham semi-naked, I have to say I like seeing him here in a suit and tie. Really highlights what a handsome man he is.
