Lionel Messi showed off his commercial side by teaming up with actor, Jason Sudeikis for a delightful beer commercial.

The 37-year-old is in the twilight years of his career and it makes sense for him to engage in other money-making ventures.

In his latest commercial endeavour, Messi collaborated with Ted Lasso actor, Sudeikis in a commercial that cost a reported $14 million (£11mil) for 60 seconds of air-time, according to GOAL.

The Argentine veteran is reportedly gearing up to grace the latest edition of the Super Bowl in what has been dubbed 'the Greatest Show on Turf'.

The event takes place on February 11, as the San Francisco 49ers and defending champions, Kansas City Chiefs lock horns in what promises to be a jam-packed occasion.

Messi stars in Super Bowl advertisement

Snippets of the promotion video have since hit the internet, with Messi teaming up with the Ted Lasso character - who has been brought out of retirement - to watch the Argentine superstar playing around at the beach.

As the Inter Miami superstar is running rings around his markers, Sudeikis comments, 'I’m going to get out there', before going back on his word by declaring he would stay instead of challenging the footballer.

In the video, the actor poses as an observer with the advertised beer, Michelob ULTRA, in his hand.

This is not the first Michelob ULTRA ad Messi has featured in. He previously appeared in another video titled GOAT vs DOG where the Inter Miami star cheekily nutmegs man’s best friend.

Another notable advert Messi was a part of was a Lays commercial for the UEFA Champions League.

Fans who will be in attendance at the Super Bowl will have to make peace with potentially seeing Messi only on a screen, as the Argentine will most likely still be in Saudi Arabia on football duty.

According to the Inter Miami website, the MLS club is set to face Al-Nassr in a ‘last dance’ between the World Cup-winner and Cristiano Ronaldo in early February, before the Herons travel to the Far East for games Hong Kong Select XI and Vissel Kobe.

On Monday, January 29, Messi featured in the Riyadh Season Cup clash against Al-Hilal, in a game in which the Saudi Pro League club won 4-3.

Messi rocks outrageously expensive sneakers

Elsewhere, Sports Brief also previously reported on the release of Messi’s latest Adidas sneakers, which are worth a proverbial fortune.

He was at an event in Miami and was spotted rocking the Forum Low Simpsons. A pair reportedly goes for hundreds of thousands of dollars.
