Barcelona FC (FCB) and their sponsors Qatar Airways have come up with an interesting new way of promotion through an advertisement and the video has gone viral on the Internet within a few hours of its release.
The advert features Neymar, Lionel Messi, Puyol, Gerard Pique, Andres Iniesta, Mascherano, Sergio Busquets and football commentator Gary Lineker playing different roles.
The advert starts off with Qatar Airlines flying above Barcelona crest-shaped island and the flight attendant announcing that they have reached BarcaLand and are preparing to land. Mascherano is one of the passengers in the flight who is woken from a comfortable sleep by the air-hostess.
Gerard Pique is shown as a customs officer approving Neymar's arrival at BarcaLand. The air hostess makes her way through the departure and into a cab. However, the cabbie is none other than former striker Gary Linekar. On her way, she sees Iniesta and Busquets taking shots on a wall with paint stains all over them. They were making a mural of the Barca players. After the flight attendant is dropped off at her destination, she peeps through a window of school of performing arts and sees Messi teaching the students dance with the help of a ball. Now comes Puyol. The defender heads a flower pot that is falling on an oblivious couple.
In the end, all the current Barcelona players line up to take to the field to play a game in front of a packed arena.
