“It falls into all the traps of Super Bowl ads: celebrities barely touching the beer, great visuals without the beer”, said an user of X, while another said “Messi went to Miami and went back in time 40 years. Now he makes Michelob ads from 1988″. It seems really clear that the Argentine striker will always be loved, but his extra football activities could not follow the same sort.
