It's Barcelona vs Real Madrid & Messi vs Ronaldo In Latest Al Jazeera Sport Ad
Barcelona's Lionel Messi may have the Ballon d'Or sitting nicely on his mantelpiece, but there are still those that still think that the Argentian maestro's genius is dwarfed by that of Cristiano Ronaldo's. So, what have the clever folks at Al Jazeera Sport done? Well, they've created an advert for the next El Clasico by pitting the two titans against each other in a texting battle. To create even more heat, they've given Messi and iPhone and the Real Madrid star an Android device. As if opinion wasn't already split enough.
It's a nod to the frenzy that matches between Barcelona and Real Madrid whip up that this advert is already circulating when the two Spanish giants won't clash until March of this year. If Al Jazeera Sport will be your channel of choice when El Clasico kicks off, you'll be treated to some Match of the Day style presentation, with Gary Lineker hosting the show. Let's just hope that Messrs Hansen and Shearer won't be joining him (that really could ruin the day).
