You know David Beckham arrived today at LAX, but this is one of the many things that happened behind the scenes. And an interesting one at that. The motive behind this video is American Beef, so welcome to America you Brit!

A&W Restaurants recently launched its Moove to American campaign to support 100% U.S. beef. Thirty all American cows traveled by barge to the icon of America -- the Statue of Liberty -- to launch the campaign on June 28 in New York City.

Americans can show their support for 100% U.S. beef by visiting a campaign web site -- and signing a petition. The petition will be online for signing until July 31. A&W will deliver the petition to the National Cattlemen's Beef Association as a show of support for U.S. beef.

We hear David Beckham might be importing his UK Beef to keep the Mad Cowiness in his system. But that's how rumours get started.
