Celebrity Selfie Royale: Kobe vs Messi

By Anthony Thurston on December 3rd 2013


If you are a fan of soccer, or even if you are not, you likely know the name of Lionel Messi. The same could be said of basketball fans, maybe even more so, about Kobe Bryant.

In a clever ad campaign for Turkish Airlines the two sports super stars engaged in an epic selfie royale that spanned the globe. This commercial has it all, from Messi outside of the Kremlin to Bryant getting licked by a lion. Check it out below:

This was an interesting way to promote an airline. I mean seriously, you get two of the worlds most well known sports stars in an epic battle that can really have no winner. They even have their own twitter hashtag, #KobevsMessi.
