It's being reported that David Beckham and Peyton Manning are appearing together in an advertising campaing during the upcoming FIFA Qatar 2022 World Cup.

The two former athletes have apparently already shot the TV ad this past week in London, with the campaign also featuring the superstars in print ads.

Its being reported that David Beckham got paid over $11 million dollars to appear in this ads, and one can only expect the pay to be similar for Peyton Manning.

What is the commercial ad about?

Reports claim that the advertising campaing involving David Beckham and Peyton Manning will illustrate the differences between the two known forms of football.

Doritos is the brand they're collaborating with.

A source cited by The Sun said that this megabucks campaign features two of the most famous sportsmen in the world and is centered around the globe's biggest tournament.

"It's huge money for both of them - but fronting anything with a Qatar link is always going to have an element of controversy."

Why is this Doritos advertising campaing controversial?

Controversy will surround many of the brands and brand ambassadors linked to the upcoming FIFA World Cup, mainly due to it being hosted in Qatar, a nation with several cultural differences and with many rights that around the world would be a given, being restricted in the Asian nation.

For example Qatar has many laws restricting women's rights and homosexuality is considered illegal, considering it a crime punishable with up to seven years in prison.

A spokeperson for David Beckham said recently that the former player has visited Qatar regularly over the past decade and has always talked about the power of football to be a force for good.
