According to the information shared by Jack during a press conference on Thursday afternoon, he traveled to Paris, France on May 11th for a previously scheduled meeting with Messi.

“I am not fluent in English, so I decided to start learning Spanish several months ago before my trip,” Jack shared.

However, upon meeting my idol, I found myself in a state of overwhelming excitement that caused me to momentarily lose my composure.

I found myself uttering words that are now lost to my memory, with the exception of one phrase – the cordial Spanish salutation ‘I am greatly honored to make your acquaintance’.

It is noteworthy that he responded with the same salutation.

During the press conference, Jack clarified that the encounter had a purely personal purpose, where the intention was to obtain autographs and capture memorable videos. It was not intended to be a deliberate public appearance.

The Vietnamese singer opted not to disclose further information regarding the context or purpose of the meeting, but did mention that it involved a dinner.

The meeting evoked a multitude of emotions within Jack, inspiring him to transform the experience into a source of inspiration for his audience, particularly those who are passionate about football.

“I consider this creation to be more than just a music video. It stands as a way for me to treasure and protect moments with a renowned figure, while simultaneously reflecting my own personal journey in defining life goals,” expressed Jack.

At the launch event for the MV on Thursday, the press sought clarification on the process behind obtaining permission to feature Messi in the video. Given his status as a prominent football superstar with significant commercial value, utilizing his image posed a multifaceted challenge.

Jack explained that to feature an image of Messi in the music video, the representative of Messi didn’t have any particular demands except for abstaining from any national or political references.

Moreover, the music video is strictly non-commercial and does not contain any monetization or sponsorships.

Jack stressed that he did not want to emphasize the financial aspect of inviting Messi to make an appearance in the video. He believed that sharing such information could overshadow the intended message of the final product.
