To raise awareness over the global issue of violence against children, the tattooed soccer player, David Beckham created a one minute video visually depicting a few different scenarios of a child being abused.
The video begins with the UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador shutting his eyes and the words, “Violence Marks Forever” being scribbled on his neck.
The next visual panel shows a little girl crying and then the audience hearing a door open. The young girl has a fearful expression plastered on her face and a shadowy adult like figure in the background.
The outlined body figure with light behind it, looks like it is moving towards the young crying girl’s bed.
The next haunting visual image showcases a baby crying and a mouth full of teeth being opened and making a yelling like sound.
Other images depicted include a child being hit by what it looks like to be an adult and then the image disappearing.
After which, the tattoos move across Victoria Beckham husband’s body. Going to his arm, where another child in pain is profiled and to his chest where a child is being picked on by another.
The video ends with Beckham saying, “It’s wrong. End it”
The video was created by the United Nations Children’s Fund and has the hashtag #EndViolence placed with it, to bring awareness to violence against children on a global scale, including the fact that every five minutes a child dies as a result of violence.
And “One-third of students between the ages of 13 and 15 worldwide are regularly bullied,” UNICEF says.
