Lionel Messi Hat Trick Video: Watch Ray Hudson Lose Mind over Barcelona Star

Gabe Zaldivar@gabezalPop Culture Lead WriterJanuary 24, 2012

Things got Messi when Barcelona trounced Malaga CF on Sunday. Catalan star Lionel Messi recorded a hat trick, which was immediately outdone by the epic commentary delivered by Ray Hudson. 

Here is the video of each goal Messi scored on a raucous Sunday of football fun. For the call in question, you will need to skip ahead to the 3:05 mark in the video. That is when Messi takes the ball on a breakaway and delivers the third goal of his momentous hat trick. 

There are no words for the marvel that was Messi scoring in what should have been an awkward movement. Well, there are words, and Hudson has plenty of them. 

Prior to this goal, Hudson delivered this on a scoring moment for Messi: "They say all men are equal in god's eyes. This player makes you seriously think about those words."

So you would think there would be nowhere to go from there. You would be ridiculously mistaken as the football commentator took public praise of Messi to a whole new level. 

It starts with what can best be described as a yip or an adolescent finally springing forth into manhood in all of one second. Hudson is overcome with joy and has no idea how to express that, so he merely yelps in gratuitous exuberance, and it is hilarious. 

He goes on to say what is on his mind. It helps the entertainment factor that his mind is now devoid of anything critical or logical and instead filled with images of walking through Disneyland with Messi and polishing his trophies with a used kit. 

He shouts Messi is like Dr. Spock because, "he is out of his Vulcan mind." But that would not be the most puzzling, nor gut-busting remark. 

Hudson then claims Messi is "running like he's got a food mixer down his shorts." It is at that point that you have to stop laughing, turn the volume up and watch the play all over again. 

How good is Ray Hudson? I just saw three epic goals and I will only remember the call.
