Colombian actor Sofia Vergara has a sexy co-star in her latest Pepsi commercial – soccer sensation David Beckham. In the 30-second ad, 38-year-old Vergara, clad only in a one-piece swimsuit, is lying on a lounge chair on the beach, irked at the long line for refreshments.
To trick all the ladies on the beach, she sends out a word that Beckham is nearby — a surefire plan to clear the way for her to get her fizz without waiting in line. “At the pier ... just saw @David Beckham,” she tweets. Finally, after easily buying her beverage, she sits back on her lounge chair and relaxes — only to have a soccer ball kicked in her direction. And it is none other than Beckham.
For Vergara, selling the beverage on the beach is just a return to her roots. In the 1980s, she played a beach bunny looking to cool off from the hot sand, shedding her clothes to keep her feet cool as she hopped toward the drink stand. “I started my career in the entertainment business many years ago with a fizz commercial that became very big in Colombia and in Latin America, so it’s fantastic for me to be doing it again,” the New York Daily News quoted her as telling the Daily Mail.
