Instead of joining up with Barcelona for their preseason tour, Lionel Messi brought a bunch of his friends together for a charity match in Mexico City on Sunday. As he walked off the pitch for halftime, he was ambushed from behind by a credentialed man with a goofy looking Messi puppet on his hand, but Leo kept his head down and ignore that thing so hard that it's amazing it didn't explode.

Here's video of the meeting...


If that doll was made of Legos, he totally would've stopped and talked to it.
