Does anyone here get this reference?

One of the commentators on the Real Madrid Barcelona game, on Gol TV on the USA channel, described Messi like a "...Messi man he is like zombie hunter going after a Twinkie."

I am trying to find out if anyone here gets what he is talking about.

    yupp, the commentator is referencing the movie "Zombieland" in which the character Tallahassee is a zombie hunter who is obsessed with finding and eating a Twinkie the entire movie.

    Basically they're comparing Messi to Tallahassee. Tallahassee can't be stopped on his quest for a Twinkie, and Messi can't be stopped in his quest for a goal.

    Yes, of course I get it. It means Messi is all powerful and anyone who thinks they can stand in his way or stop him is soft, spongy and cream-filled. This is an analogy to show that Messi is at the top of the food chain, and everyone else is going to get killed. Oh, by the way, since this was a question about language I chose to try and help, however, stop wasting your time watching soccer. What a colossally stupid game.
