Lionel Messi gets a full animated biopic in this new video from Gatorade – portraying the footballing star’s life as some kind of Pixar film if Pixar films involved lots of nutmegs and freekicks. The film begins with a baby Messi beginning his career by playing keepy-ups with his own tears, before we see him rising through the ranks as a young player, pausing only to receive some words of wisdom from his older self in a scene reminiscent of Darth Vader’s funeral in Return of The Jedi. The animation culminates with God himself intervening to put Lio off his goal-scoring mission, but the happy ending makes up for all the hard work and Gatorade-drinking the Argentinian forward put into his career.
