In collaboration with PepsiCo brand Lay’s and UNIT9, 180Amsterdam we created a personalised video experience for the latest global interactive campaign featuring Lionel Messi - Messi Messages.

About Messi Messages

Messi Messages is a simple video experience enabling fans to send personalized videos with Messi addressing their friends by name. Even more - the experience supports Messi speaking 8 different languages.

The campaign also received a Cannes Lion award in 2021.

Messi Messages Customer Case

How does Messi Messages work?

The collaboration uses our cutting-edge AI technology to generate a synthetic version of the football player, enabling him to speak 8 languages. The experience is highly personalised, with more than 650 million video variations available in 8 languages.

How was Synthetic Messi created?

All that was needed to create Messi’s synthetic avatar was recording Messi for 5 minutes in a green screen studio, speaking in his native Spanish. This original footage was then used to train Synthesia’s deep learning algorithms. And so Synthetic Messi was born.

What were the results of the campaign?
