You know we love Lionel Messi content here. He’s probably the best player to ever lace up a pair of boots, he’s still playing, and he’s got some bang average tattoos, just so it’s possible to feel superior to him. That’s just how generous he is.
Well, the world’s greatest footballer is back with a cheeky little spot for Gatorade, plugging in highlight clips of some of his best long-range goals with some footage of him training, fuelled by the lightning bolt-branded energy drink.
He’s also got a little ice box with some Gatorade bottles in, which. It’s a vibe, isn’t it? Couple of ice lollies in the bottom and straight to the beach after, if he’s got anything about him.
The video has been released as part of Gatorade’s ‘The Greatest Never Settle’ campaign, also featuring the likes of Serena Willians and Gabriel Jesus.
Messi said: “This Gatorade campaign demonstrates the importance of pushing yourself to be better and believing you can go further, even when you have been successful. It takes hard work, on and off the pitch, to try and get to a place where you can perform on the world’s biggest stages, and I hope this campaign inspires both fans and young athletes to never settle as they journey on their own paths to greatness.”
The Argentine gets a rare break from action this weekend, with Argentina’s planned internationals postponed, leaving him a full 15 days between last Sunday’s 6-1 win over Real Sociedad and a home game against relegation-threatened Real Valladolid on Easter Monday.
The win over La Real kept Barcelona within four points of La Liga leaders Atletico Madrid, with historic rivals Real Madrid a further two points back as the Spanish league title race comes down to its last ten games – with Barça also playing out the Copa del Rey final next month.
