Everyone on the planet knows who David Beckham is, obviously, as his face and body are plastered all over the web and TV screens across the globe. All of his tattoos and the commericals and his former Spice girl wife Victoria. The famous Ali G interview. And everyone knows he's known for scoring off free kicks, bending the ball around or up and over the wall, as he does it quite often. The phrase itself becoming a movie title, Bend it Like Beckham. Those are all things that are, well, quite obvious.
But I don't think many folks know that Mr. David Beckham's favorite word is 'obviously'. Yes, he likes to use it in interviews whenever he can, obviously, since it's his favorite word. Just take a look and listen at these interviews below.
David Beckham Confirms Baby Girl
Here he says obviously only 2 times.
David Beckham Returns to the LA Galaxy
Here he says obviously just 3 times.
David Beckham Ready for a Healthy Season with the LA Galaxy
Here Becks goes for broke and busts out with a grand total 8 uses of the word obviously.
I don't me to hate on Mr. Beckham. In all seriousness, well, as much as possible at this point, he is the real deal. He lives up to the hype when he laces up the boots and gets out on the field. He's a fantastic player and brings a quality and class to the MLS. He's played for three of the best clubs in the history of the game, Manchester United, obviously, Real Madrid, and then AC Milan. Sure, he played for AC Milan while on loan from the LA Galaxy, which didn't make the LA fans too happy, obviously.
And one can't say he doesn't have tremendous ability on the ball in terms of touch, control, passing, crossing and timing. And this all at the ripe old age of 35, obviously.
But, keep an eye and ear out for future interviews with Beckham, as I'm sure you're bound to hear him throw out the word 'obviously' at least two or three or maybe even eight times.
