Lionel Messi won the Ballon d’Or award (FIFA Player of the Year) for a record fourth-straight year, but it’s his outfit that has people buzzing.

Sweet threads, right? He’d fit in perfectly with the Miami Heat.
Now if you’re wondering where Messi may have gotten the idea to wear such a tux, SI’s Bryan A. Graham thinks it was an homage to Mardona.
Who knows what the inspiration was? We just know it looked ridiculous.
