Peyton Manning-David Beckham will be seen together in a Doritos campaign
FIFA 2022 is around the corner and the biggest of the brands are roping in the biggest of the stars to endorse their product leading up to the marquee event.
Reportedly, Doritos recently roped in Peyton Manning and David Beckham for an ad campaign that will shed light on the two different forms of football.
In fact, Beckham has signed a seven-figure deal for the job and although the exact amount Manning will take home is not confirmed, one can expect that figure to be quite similar to Beckham’s.
However, even before the two stars were confirmed for the campaign, controversies around the Qatar World Cup had already started brewing.
Beckham was paid around $10.8 million for promoting Qatar tourism and is also the face of the tournament. However, this brought in a lot of criticism for David as several fans and activists highlighted that women and homosexuals are blatantly persecuted in Qatar.
David’s representatives had responded to the criticism by saying that the soccer star’s aim behind promoting Qatar tourism is to use football as an agent of change and positivity.
Amidst all this, Manning getting involved with a brand specifically eyeing the Qatar World Cup might attract a little criticism from the fans. Irrespective of that, the amount of cash he’ll be taking home is definitely going to add greatly to his wealth.
