The ad, Kobe vs. Messi: The Selfie Shootout, has received more than 140 million views on YouTube. The spot was a follow up to the 2012 Legends on Board campaign. The video features two of the world’s biggest sports superstars, Kobe Bryant and Lionel Messi, in a face-off game for selfie supremacy. The combination of the selfie trend along with well-known superstars who showcase just a few destinations where Turkish Airlines travels to across the globe, resulted in the ad becoming an instant hit, receiving 25 million views within the first three days.

“The YouTube ad was meant to increase awareness about Turkish Airlines’ large network as compared to other carriers. Anyone flying Turkish Airlines gets to widen their world through our hub in Istanbul that caters to 260 global destinations,” said Zeki Cukur, Senior Vice President, Corporate Communications at Turkish Airlines. “Kobe and Messi did a fantastic job of allowing us to highlight our unparalleled network. We offer access to destinations around the world to our customers that no other airlines can. We must thank our passengers for helping us become one of the best airlines.”
