adidas Launches #fastorfail with Lionel Messi

iris and MediaMonks has launched #fastorfail for adidas, an online gaming platform starring Lionel Messi. Powered by social media, it also offers one fan the chance to get to Rio for the FIFA World Cup.

It can be played on mobile or a desktop and lives on

The game marks the launch of Messi’s new adizero f50 football boot. It lets people play like they were in Messi's shoes, on the pitch. They must beat their rivals in order to get to the final pitch in Brazil. 

Player's speed is fuelled by live tweets with #Teammessi, the higher the crowd-buzz around Messi becomes, the faster you play. Players can access an in-game social crowd buzz-meter to get real-time updates. 

Those who make it all the way to Brazil in the game make a chance to win a trip to Rio and tickets to the FIFA World Cup.
