Chinese Company Pimps David Beckham for Viagra Clone

BeckhamBulge

David Beckham is not happy that a Chinese company is using his image to plug a Viagra-like supplement called USA Selikon:

Impotence-david-beckham "David Beckham isn't the only famous celebrity to have been targeted in these advertisements as apparently Keanu Reeves and Sean Connery have also been seen on Chinese TV advertising erectile dysfunction medication. The legal system in China is a minefield of bureaucracy and therefore most of the companies get away with using the images of movie stars and celebrities to endorse their products."

In the commercial a voice actor says: “Want to know how I can keep being strong and running on the football field? USA Selikon capsules help me a lot. It’s also the secret weapon with which I can satisfy Victoria.”

A source told The Daily Star tab: "He doesn’t find it funny. David’s fair game and can take a bit of a ribbing in the name of comedy. But to poke fun at his sexual prowess to plug a product is overstepping the mark.”

  3. Viagra is a drug that doctors prescribe to help men with erectile dysfunction to have sex. Impotence is the inability of the penis to become rigid (hard), or to stay rigid long enough to finish having sex. Sildenafil, the essential ingredient in Viagra, helps maintain that erection.

    When a man is aroused, a chemical called cyclic GMP triggers a chain of reactions that ends up relaxing the penis muscles and letting extra blood flow in. Rigid muscles don't cause the hardness of an erection; the extra blood does.

  4. Everyone has heard of it. Everyone knows what it's for and how well it works. We've heard the tales...hours of sexual pleasure is as easy as taking a pill. Yes, it is Viagra, the little blue pill. And it is effective, but there are cautions to be adhered to as well.

    The blue pill is an oral drug for male impotence, also known as erectile dysfunction. Having been around for a lot longer, this impotence pill has a great safety track record and proven effects that start acting in 30 minutes and last for about 5 hours.

  6. It is a very controversial issue. No wonder Beckham sued them.

  7. This is certainly an unethical way to advertise erectile dysfunction pills. The manufacturer must pay David for the damages it caused him.
