Liverpool Ace Stars Alongside Barcelona Icon Lionel Messi In New Pepsi Advert

12 February, 2019 | Olayemi

Liverpool forward Mo Salah has teamed up with Barcelona icon lIonel Messi to promote Pepsi in a new TV commercial.

Pepsi has a tradition of being promoted by some of the world's leading footballers, with David Beckham, Roberto Carlos and Carli Lloyd having starred in previous campaigns.

Salah has been a Pepsi brand ambassador since 2016 but his promotion to TV advert co-star reflects his stunning form since joining Liverpool — he has scored 64 goals in 86 games for the Reds.

Egypt international Salah tweeted a 30-second version of the advert on Monday night, along with the hashtag '#FORTHELOVEOFIT'.

The video begins with Messi and Salah arriving at a petrol station in the middle of a sandy scene where they discover there is just one can of Pepsi left in the fridge.

In order to decide who deserves the can, the duo then release a load of footballs from a display unit and begin challenging each other in a range of drills.

After matching each other — by successfully kicking balls at a sign, into the headlight sockets of a conked-out car and then through moving tires — Messi and Salah are surprised when a third party cheekily arrives to drink the final Pepsi.

Salah smiles and shrugs while Messi is seen shaking his head at this development, before the pair spot a Pepsi lorry which they chase with their arms waving.
