Apparently the new Kobe 8 System sneakers don't just help Kobe Bryant play basketball. In this funny new commercial for Turkish Airlines, the Los Angeles Lakers star shows he is a man of many talents as he competes with FC Barcelona soccer star Lionel Messi for the attention of a young passenger. Kobe and Messi try everything from dribbling balls to building card houses to crafting balloon animals to try and get the kid to take their autograph. But in the end they both lose out to ice cream. Because, in the end, you scream, I scream, and even Kobe and Messi scream for ice cream.

What do you think of Kobe and Messi's commercial? Tell us in the Comments below.
