MESSI gets motion-captured for video game

After spending most of his childhood days competing on PlayStation games against brothers and friends (even having a big rivalry with Sergio AGUERO on Pro Evolution Soccer), Lionel MESSI must be realising one of those unreal dreams of youth. He is now getting paid to do all the motion-capture process for the next edition of the successful Pro Evolution Soccer saga, the Pro Evo 2010.

This motion-capture session took place exactly one day after a drunk MESSI spoke at the Camp Nou during Barcelona's triple-crown celebrations (and the short interview included in this video starts with him talking about it in Spanish).

What he said in that interview is not really that relevant otherwise. What I wanted to show you is this curious images of MESSI wearing that special black suit full of plastic balls hanging from his shoulders, elbows, knees, etc.

Here's how the Pro Evo 2010 trailer looks like, with another of our favourite heroes, chasing Lio from behind!
