Ad of the Day: Adidas Football - Leo Messi Back in Barcelona

Disappointment at the World Cup hasn’t stopped Barcelona’s Leo Messi putting on an impressive display in his latest campaign for Adidas.

‘Mes que un botin’ may mean Messi’s Adidas adizero f50’s are ‘more than a boot’ but here he’s more than a player too - transforming into a tiger.

Created by iris Worldwide the film is meant to be a ‘monument to the man, the way he plays and the city he loves’.

Spanish football fans will be hoping Messi puts the same effort into his games when La Liga returns in just a few short weeks.
