Brooklyn Beckham has landed his first ever advertising campaign from Huwei mobile. The 17-year-old has reportedly got paid a whopping sum of 100 ($129) million pounds for his first ad.
The son of Victoria and David Beckham shot the campaign for the Chinese mobile company in London on Tuesday.
Brooklyn Beckham clinched the deal due to his strong social media following and his good looks. “Huawei went for Brooklyn because he’s young, well-presented and seen as a good role model for kids his age. He’s got millions of social media followers and this is a good way to engage a load of youngsters,” said a source close to the family, speaking to The Sun.
Brooklyn’s rep confirmed that the teen had indeed bagged the Huwei mobile advertising campaign, Daily Mail reports. The insider added that though people may think that he has got the ad campaign because of his famous parents, however, Brooklyn Beckham does not take things for granted. The teenager has his feet firmly on the ground and knows that he is lucky.
The aspiring photographer seems to have taken a leaf out of the book of his retired footballer dad David and his younger brother Romeo. Brooklyn is following in the footsteps of the former England football captain and his little brother who is a Burberry brand ambassador. However, the teen has previously appeared on the cover of Vogue and Miss Vogue.
Brooklyn Beckham gave his first ever interview to Miss Vogue in October 2015 and also featured on its cover. The teen who has 7.6m Instagram followers talked about dating, tattoos, jewelry and outfits he steals from his dad’s wardrobe.
The stylish teen who wants to study photography, has also made a name for him by photographing the Burberry fragrance campaign in January. He was criticized by photographers for bagging the project without any experience and being the son of David and Victoria Beckham. However, Brooklyn proved his critics wrong and showed off his skills in the series of pictures he shot.
Meanwhile, Brooklyn keeps his updated with details of his life through Instagram. He also uses the photo sharing app to post pictures he clicks of his family and friends. His private life has become the talk in recent weeks after he confirmed his relationship with ex-girlfriend and actress Chloe Grace Moretz.
