David Beckham has turned classical musician for a new advertising campaign - he plays Beethoven's Ode to Joy by kicking footballs at awall of drums.

Olympics ambassador Beckham has teamed up with bosses at electronics company Samsung, the official sponsor of the London 2012 Games, to promote their new Galaxy Note cell phone.

In the short film, the sportsman enters a film studio while speaking onhis mobile as the drums are prepared for the task.

He then lines up 15 balls and kicks them at the instruments, recreatingthe sound of Beethoven's famous work.

Once he hits the final drum, Beckham spins around and strikes a large gong at the back of the room with another ball.
