A funny video has emerged from Barcelona’s trophy parade involving Luis Suarez and Neymar.
The video shows Suarez looking worried, but smiling at the same time, as his Barcelona teammate creeps up wielding a weapon - which turns out to be a confetti gun.
The Uruguayan striker can be seen shouting at Neymar - in a bid to convince the Brazilian not to shoot - while jumping up and down to avoid being hit. However, Neymar shows no mercy and shoots Suarez from point-blank range - prompting him to let out a loud and hilarious scream. (Scroll down this page to watch the video).

Neymar then walks off smiling while looking back at the same time, probably fearful of a reaction from his fellow ‘MSN’ member.
It was all in good humour, though. The two South Americans get on well both on and off the pitch.

Suarez and Neymar have huge mutual respect
As well as their friendship, both players have huge mutual respect for each other’s footballing abilities.
Indeed, just this week, Suarez explained to reporters why Neymar is destined to become the world’s best player once Lionel Messi begins to slow down.
"Neymar will be the best in the world," the former Liverpool striker was quoted as saying by Marca. "He has been here for two years now, and it is totally different to when he arrived.
"He trusts his qualities, he has improved and is now a worldwide star."
But not everyone is happy with Neymar...
However, Neymar’s commitment and off-field activities have been questioned by critics in recent months.
The 24-year-old’s performances have also deteriorated towards the end of the current campaign and, with only the Copa del Rey final left to play, his goal tally is currently nine goals shorter than the total he registered last season.
A surprising poll conducted by Catalan newspaper Sport last month - per the Mirror - found that 62 per cent of Barcelona fans would be in favour of selling the forward in order to generate funds for the club.
Barcelona unlikely to sell Neymar
It would cost any interested club up to £150 million to sign the Brazilian - due to the release clause in his contract - and it’s hard to imagine Barcelona agreeing to sell, despite the fact the money would allow the club to renew the contracts of both Messi and Suarez while also freeing up cash to reinvest in the squad.
Barca would have every reason to fear that selling Neymar would eventually come back to haunt them - Real Madrid president Florentino Perez is understood to be “obsessed” with the idea of bringing him to the Bernabeu - so the odds of a shock summer transfer happening are slim at best.
