Watch Kobe Bryant and Lionel Messi face off in a commercial

December 06, 2012|By Melissa Rohlin

Turkish Airlines released a commercial that features Kobe Bryant and Lionel Messi competing for a kid's attention.

The enviable kid walks back and forth on an airplane as Bryant and Messi each try to impress him.

Messi kicks the ball in place, using some fancy footwork. Bryant responds by passing the ball through his legs over and over again as they're extended in the air. And so on and so forth.

He eventually walks away from both men to eat some ice cream.

Perhaps Turkish Airlines' next commercial should be a video of that kid, all grown up, chastising the younger version of himself for leaving two of the all-time greats in sport to get his sugar fix.
