Coming Up A Belt Short Of A Photo With Lionel Messi (Video)

A belt.  For one poor soul, that would prove to be the difference between a photo with the world’s top footballer, Lionel Messi, and public embarrassment on national television.

Attempting to chase down the Barcelona star at the airport for a once in a lifetime photo opportunity, this man’s hustle left him with a difficult decision once he finally caught up to Messi: Does he pull up his pants, which were falling below his knees, or should he just take the picture before it is too late?

In this case, he chose to lift his pants, perhaps in an effort to save himself some face in front of the world class football star.  Needless to say, that would turn out to be a bad choice as he missed out on the photo and was still caught with his pants around his knees on national television.  And in case you didn’t catch it the first time, this on-the-ball news station even slowed it down and highlighted the awkward moment for all to see.
