Now this is funny.

Turkish Airlines have Kobe Bryant and Lionel Messi as their endorsers, and I can’t imagine that’d be cheap. In this ad, Bryant and Messi have a competition, but it has nothing to do with their respective sports. The biggest soccer star and arguably the biggest basketball star in the world get into a “selfie” competition.

Bryant and Messi fly all over the world to try and get the best selfie, and hilarity ensues. It’s cool to see these guys have a little fun, and Kobe’s face in the last one is priceless.

The company has a pretty brilliant marketing team, and it shows in their commercials. Here is last year’s showdown:
