Messi Pepsi Max advert

Pepsi Max released an ad titled “Nutmeg Royale” ahead of the 2022 World Cup, and it’s sure to be an iconic streak for years to come.

Featuring some of football’s best players, past and present, Lionel Messi is joined by Paul Pogba and Ronaldinho in a nutmeg tournament. Often, nutmegs are a source of great ridicule. All over the world they are greeted with derision, howls of laughter heaved over the unlucky soul who has just been foiled by the most humiliating skill.
