Did You Spot David Beckham's Butt Double?

We were so hypnotized by that rockin' ass — assmotized? — that we failed to notice certain continuity errors involving David Beckham's signature tattooed sleeves and tramp stamp in his revealing new H&M underwear ad.

Yes, Virginia, there is no Santa Claus and David Beckham used a body double in the Guy Ritchie-directed short film. And just when you were coming to terms with Beyoncé lip-synching at Obama's inauguration!

"David was very involved in the advert including doing most of the stunts," said a rep for H&M in a statement. "Due to his tight schedule a body double was used in smaller parts of the video." Smaller parts, eh? We beg to differ.

Beckham admittedly tweeted that he did "pretty much" all his own stunts, and sharp eyes have also spotted a shirtless Becks-lookalike lurking in the background of the film shoot, but H&M has so far remained tight-lipped about the identity of the tight-bottomed double.

We expect it won't be too long before the mystery man comes forward and becomes bigger than Calvin Klein's Matthew Terry and Diet Coke's Andrew Cooper combined.
