David Beckham clearly has a sense of humor

CARSON, Calif. – It can be easy to dismiss David Beckham as a “brand,” as some sexy-but-possibly-soulless force of marketing nature. But in personal interaction, the man really does have an elegance, charm and charisma, even in a larger group setting.

And the man has a sense of humor, too. Clearly.

At one point during Thursday’s press conference at the Home Depot Center, a reporters’ cell phone went off on the podium. (It was there with a bunch of other phones, placed for its dual capacity as a voice recorder.)

Beckham got big laughs when he took on a sheepish grin and asked, “Should I answer it?”

Immediately, everyone had the image of somebody’s pal or mom or whatever calling – and being shocked to hear David Beckham pick up.

Then even bigger laughs when set the phone back on the table with a giggle.

“It’s not a Samsung. Sorry I can’t.”
