Even the BBC admits that

Even the BBC admits that Beckham and Posh Spice underwhelmed America during their recent publicity tour. I'm still working out the details of this theory, but maybe English people can't become famous over here unless they fit our stereotypes of what British people are like (Sean Connery, Pierce Brosnan, Anthony Hopkins) or have been around long enough to forge their celebrity through persistence (Elton John). The Beatles were an exception, but that was a million years ago.

As far as the Beckhams go, we don't even accept soccer as a major sport here, so why would we want a celebrity soccer player who isn't even American? -adm
