Not only was Messi's face plastered all over the packaging, but his name, the Barcelona logo and the seal of the King of Spain was also depicted, Peruvian officials said in a news release.

The seized cocaine reportedly has a street value of $85 million.

However, that's not the strangest part. The cocaine was found stuffed in nearly 1,300 squid fillets that were being prepped to be shipped to Belgium.

No one has been arrested for the shipment yet.
