Kobe Jumps Over a Moving Aston Martin to Promote Shoe

Seen below is Lakers superstar Kobe Bryant doing his best to promote his new shoe…and ensure the Lakers have zero chance in the NBA Playoffs. We’re not experts on shadows and perspective, but this looks pretty damn real. I wonder what Phil Jackson has to say about this.

Update: Is that Ronny Turiaf with him?

Update 2: Lakers Blog over at the LA Times reports that the video is indeed fake.

From the article: Also, to address a question freaking out a few of our worry wart-ier readers… no, The New Jack Bauer is not really pulling off the stunt.  Kobe described the sequence as “Hollywood” after last night’s game (“If ‘Rambo Part XX’ can be a one-man militia, I can jump over an Aston Martin.”)

    Kobe is just A.W.S.O.M.E.
    You’ve never seen anyone else in the nba do that!
    Now we definitely know who deserves MVP!

    people are insanely dumb for believing this is real. would the lakers let there 9 figure investment jump a moving car thats traveling at him? no. would kobe, who doesn’t even like to pass the ball, risk his career to promote a show he already got a check for? no. get real. people who bite for this are the reason america has such a low national IQ

    this is so not real because i am in physics and i know how all this works. if he would have really jumped over the car his shadow would have definantly been placed different on the car. he was totally beside it because if you jump iver the bottom of your shadow is going to show on the car not the whole side profile shadow. duh. i cant believe people would believe this
