Lionel Messi Gets Tron Treatment, Scores Wearing LED Suit in New Adidas Commercial (Video)


Bet you’ve never seen Lionel Messi like this before.

The soccer superstar is featured in a new adidas commercial, which sees him wear a full-body LED suit (with a matching hood) and get to work after someone shuts off the lights.

The dimly lit Messi runs, dribbles, juggles and shoots — we can assume he scored. He always does.

His moves leave a trail of light in his wake, lending credence to adidas’ new slogan “The New Speed of Light.” It brings back memories of that old movie, Tron, and its sequel, Tron 2.

See Messi don the LED suit in the video below.
