It’s David Beckham in his underwear – up close and personal!

The L.A. Galaxy soccer superstar, 37, will be requesting a more secluded location for his next H&M fashion shoot, after he was caught with his pants down Tuesday – wearing nothing but a pair of H&M briefs – by a busload of tourists in Beverly Hills.

Beckham was seen grinning but clearly a little embarrassed in photos taken at the scene.

At one point he ran into the roadside brush to find some cover from the wide-eyed visitors.

He may be bashful in person, but Beckham is usually happy to strip down for millions of people – as he did in that very revealing Super Bowl ad for H&M last February, advertising his bodywear line with the company.
