Biography

FINS FACT
In 2010, Reggie made the trip down to South Africa to cheer on the U.S. national team during its World Cup run. Bush was in the country with adidas, a World Cup sponsor that has used Reggie in some very creative cross-promotion before. In the “Futbol Meets Football” campaign, Reggie and David Beckham matched skills in a great series of ads that featured Reggie taking penalty kicks and Beckham in a helmet and shoulder pads. “That was cool,” Bush said. “We did that three or four years ago now, out in Spain, actually. He was with Real Madrid at the time, before he came to L.A. It was cool, getting the chance to meet him and talk to him. I was kind of sizing him up a little bit.”
