The buzz: David Beckham's leading role in H&M film

The ad’s reception on Twitter appears to be overwhelmingly positive.

That @KevinHart4real is one fool! I’m am dying over the H&M #SelectedbyBeckham ad! HAHAHAHA! #breakingbariers #inspiration #trailblazing

The #DavidBeckham advert with @KevinHart4real is actual advertising genius. Great creative thinking #H&M

This David Beckham x Kevin Hart H&M advert/short is fantastic.

A 7min advert sounds unwatchable but then you bring together David Beckham and @KevinHart4real and well.

Christ, David Beckham gets better with age. He is SMOKIN’ HOT in that H&M advert.
