Here is probably one of the best football-related adverts you’ll ever see and it involves the stars of Barcelona. The Catalan club have been in the shadow of their rivals Real Madrid in the transfer market this summer but the advert reminds us that they possess some of the star names in global football. Only a fool would write them off with regards to La Liga and the best prize of them all- the Champions League.
Messi, Iniesta, and new signing Neymar are among those at the forefront of the advert for Qatar Airways who also happen to be Barcelona’s shirt sponsor. It is genius really and you can tell a lot of money went into it. It features the Barcelona stars in an airport and starts off with defender Gerard Pique playing the role of a border guard checking passenger’s passports. One of them just happens to be Neymar, who is travelling with a football no doubt bought in duty free with all his hard earned new cash. He shows off his skills and the ball lands on one lucky family’s baggage trolley.
Sergio Busquets and Iniesta are then shown painting a picture of Barcelona’s team with a football. There is also a random appearance from former Barcelona striker Gary Lineker who keeping with the English theme of the taxi is its driver! Throw in a great panoramic view of the Nou Camp and you have yourself a world class advert!
