VFX company Stardust created a global campaign for China's messaging app WeChat. In this spot, Argentine football phenom Lionel Messi uses WeChat to calm his baby down with some footie juggling tricks from afar.

Guess it was in Messi's contract to wear adidas, as that trefoil is prominent throughout.

The spot is airing in fifteen countries across Asia and Latin America as well as South Africa and Turkey.
