Robot Messi Will Now Be A Regular Fixture In Your Nightmares

Brazilian media giant Globo wanted to do something very special to celebrate the World Cup, so, logically, they built a giant demonic robot likeness of Argentinian soccer player Lionel Messi.

Globo is using the robot Messi to startle people on camera and for segments in between game, reports Sports Grid. Brazil and Argentina have a long-standing soccer rivalry, so basically they spent a bunch of money to create a scary robot for the sake of making fun of Argentina.

Seems completely reasonable and not at all sadistic to the poor people they sic the robot on.
