Video: Barca's Puyol heads plant pot in airline advert

Posted by Chris Wright

Several of Barcelona's biggest and shiniest stars have been corralled into appearing in a new advert for Qatar Airways, which sees the likes of Gerard Pique, Neymar, Andres Iniesta, Sergio Busquets and Lionel Messi going about their daily lives in FC Barcelonaland.

There's even a brief cameo from former Barca striker-turned-Leicester's premier crisp peddler Gary Lineker, though the show is well and truly stolen by Puyol. He once again proves his "hardman" credentials by proving that he really is willing to get his head on absolutely anything -- including large plant pots ...

As corporate/football tie-ins go, that's got to be one of the best, and you just know that Puyol refused to work with a stage prop when it came to shooting his scene; the guy is strictly "method" when it comes to destroying garden-ware with his forehead!
