Messi Tests His Skills Against a Giant Inflatable Goalie on Japanese TV

Lionel Messi’s crazy commercial escapades are no secret. Remember late last year when his marketing crew had him promoting a product that combines socks and extra-resistant bubbles? Footbubbles? Yeah…

Yesterday, a video was released that features the FC Barcelona crack going up against a giant inflatable goalkeeper. Though it’s not a commercial, it certainly rides the wave of trippy shit Messi has appeared in. His game show appearance is wonderful and terrifying all at once, reminiscent of evil miniature golf course obstacles and superhero stunts.

Nutmegs, outrageous curling shots into top corners – things you may have only ever witnessed in your wildest dreams (and/or on FIFA practice mode). Watch above.
