GOAT! Messi Spotted Posing with Animal in New Adidas Commercials. Wearing the Argentina home shirt for the tournament in Russia and a whole load of other merchandise supplied by sponsor Adidas, Messi is pictured holding and stroking various goats.
The goats came from La Granja Natura, a Barcelona-based petting zoo, and their vets were on hand to ensure no goats were harmed during the photoshoot.
According to the write-up in Paper, Messi was a natural with the animals. ‘I am a big fan of animals,’ he said.
‘I grew up with them and they have taught me many things. Now we have our dog Hulk [a large French mastiff] who really is part of the family, we always include him.
‘Our children learn so much from Hulk. The love shown between him and the kids and the kids and him is constant.’
