Top 5 commercials featuring Lionel Messi
The Lionel Messi-Cristiano Ronaldo debate is one that’ll go on until the end of time. People will always choose to compare the iconic duo instead of appreciating their talents and thanking their lucky stars that they were fortunate enough to see these two football stalwarts play in the same era.
However, nobody can deny the odds Messi has overcome to become the player he is. No words can do justice to the Barcelona legend’s greatness so I’m not even going to try. That said, his ridiculous talent has earned him both fame and fortune. With his new contract at Barcelona announced, Messi now earns a salary in excess of $42 million.
As one of the most marketable stars in the world, Messi endorses various brands like Adidas, Samsung, Pepsi, Turkish Airlines, etc – pulling in an astronomical $23 million from endorsements alone.
While the Argentine has featured in scores of ads, there are a select few that are as brilliant as his exploits on the field. So without further ado, let’s take a look at the top 5 commercials featuring Messi.
#5 Turkish Airlines: Legends on Board
The ad from Turkish Airlines’ hilarious Messi-Bryant series sees the duo face-off once again to try and impress a little boy aboard the flight they’re travelling on. At first, the youngster seems star struck to see the two sporting legends on board, but soon finds himself as the bone of contention between the two stars, who try an abundance of tricks in an effort to win him over.
As the competition gets more heated, a winner emerges, but it’s not who you think! So, who emerges the victor in the rather cute and funny conclusion? You’re going to have to watch the ad to find out.
