beckhamSHANGHAI, CHINA – It’s no problem in the Pepsi commercials, but stampedes to see David Beckham in real life can be dangerous.

A handful of people had to go to the hospital after a crowd of thousands rushed to see the soccer superstar in China.

Anytime thousands run frantically in the same direction, you’re just asking for trouble. Think about the Lion King!  We all know how that ended.

Anyway, at least the injuries in Shanghai were not life threatening. Still, Beckham cancelled his promotional event in the city. Maybe next time folks can be a little more posh.
