Argentinian soccer superstar Lionel Messi joined the ever-growing list of athletes getting paid truck-loads of money to appear on Japanese game shows last week. The trick that he pulled off on the show will blow your mind ... just like it blew mine.

Juggling a soccer ball is difficult (damn near impossible for some) at the best of times. Juggling a soccer ball over a 59-foot high fence in the sky, and controlling the ball upon its return to earth, is something entire other-worldly.

Messi is believed to have the best first-touch skills of all time, and he certainly shows them off here by controlling the ball upon its return not once ... but twice. Crazy.


The trick by Messi also set a new world record for lift-and-control of a soccer ball at 18 meters (59 feet).
