Diego Maradona steals bottle of Coke from small child

In this Coca-Cola ad from 1982, Maradona, the most gifted cheat of all time, proves that he is also a shit actor.

I had never seen the Maradona commercial- in the US we're just used to making fun of the Mean Joe Green version of this (exactly the same):

Sez, I was going to mention that it was a version of the original Joe Green ad. Good spot!

The only question that remains is...who's got the better hair??? Maradona's obviously reigns supreme from the crown up, but one can't ignore Joe Green's total commitment to covering his face with similar length and style of hair to the head!

Joe Green for me - plus he would have eaten Diego for breakfast!

It's a slippery slope from from sweet, syrupy Coke to white, powdery coke, as Diego warns us all.

Missed the translation but I am assuming he said "fuck off kid, that isn't the sort of coke that El Diego dabbles in"
