After approaching a bar, Messi asks for a Michelob Ultra beer but is stopped when the tap breaks.

The barmaid in the advert then asks if he would like a different beer, but the 36-year-old responds: “No no no, Michelob Ultra.”

Fans have been left stunned by Messi’s appearance in the advert, with some highlighting his apparent reluctance to speak in English.

One person tweeted: “Messi’s utter refusal to force out even a ‘hello’ and do a Superbowl ad in pure Rosarino Spanish is just awe-inspiring.”
