Didier Drogba And Lionel Messi Play Dueling Foodies For Turkish Airlines

Who knew the global soccer stars were such gastro-tourists?

Last year,Lionel Messi got in a selfie showdown with NBA star Kobe Bryant for Turkish Airlines. This year, the FC Barcelona icon faces off against fellow futbol legend Didier Drogba for the brand, as the former tries to find a restaurant the Argentinian hasn’t been to yet.

The spot, by agency CPB London, has the cheesy, could-be-dubbed-in-any-language international flavor of a Mentos ad, but soccer fans will still get a kick out of seeing two global stars yucking it up for the camera.
