Samsung GALAXY 11: Mario Götze is selected (Video)

Samsung is putting together a team of the 11 best players in the world on a team called the “GALAXY 11″ to take on a threatening alien race. They’re announcing the team week by week, and last week they released a video announcing Lionel Messi as the team captain. This week they’ve added Bayern Munich midfielder Mario Götze to the squad.

The video wasn’t quite as exciting as Messi’s and is considerably shorter. Messi’s showed him dribbling a ball around Barcelona trying to evade the men following him. Götze’s just shows him in a field staring at the sky.

Still, having Götze and Messi in the midfield is a great start to any starting 11.

“We are excited to welcome Lionel Messi as the captain of the GALAXY 11 team and invite the world to join us as we enter the ‘recruitment’ chapter of this fantasy-inspired story,” said Younghee Lee, Executive Vice President of Global Marketing, IT & Mobile Division at Samsung Electronics. “At Samsung, creativity is at the core of everything we do. GALAXY 11 extends our legacy of developing multi-layered, 360-degree campaigns that are both entertaining and engaging. We encourage fans to follow this fantasy meets reality campaign, as we introduce more ways for fans to get closer to their favorite sport and players.”

Stay tuned to FanSided as we keep you up to date on who has been selected to the GALAXY 11.
