New trailer for the Kobe “movie”

Leave a comment

We’ve told you about the Kobe Bryant/Nike/Black Mamba movie (okay, commercial)  coming to a laptop screen near you All-Star weekend.

It’s full of Bruce Willis and plenty of over-the-top acting and action. Which means it should be pretty fun.

You’ve seen the first trailer, here is the new one enjoy.

Kobe Bryant’s new “Black Mamba” ad, er, movie trailer

“He thought he was on a road trip to Dallas. But he was on a freeway to Hell…”

Sure, the new “The Black Mamba” advertisement movie is not going to be cheesy. It has Bruce Willis in it, how could it not be cheesy?

We told you before that Kobe and director Robert Rodriguez had hooked up to do a short film that might in some way happen to try and sell some Nike shoes. And that Kobe was getting the full Hollywood star treatment because of it.

Now we have the official trailer for you to watch and it looks like a typical Hollywood blockbuster — cool look, lots of effects, we’ll worry about the script thing later. The entire movie is expected to drop around All-Star Weekend.

And is there a difference between a road trip to Dallas and one to Hell?

Snoop Dogg picks “Purp and Yellow” to three-peat

1 Comment

Snoop Dogg knows what he likes: USC football, Katy Perry, 4:20, VIP Records and the Lakers.

Snoop teamed up with The Game and YG to give us “Purp & Yellow” telling us how the Lakers are going to three-peat while fitting in references to Black Mamba, Ron Artest, Pau Gasol, and fish and chips (via Mark Medina at the LA Times Lakers blog). A lyrical sampling:

Swish! 24, that’s black mamba
Snoop Dogg, he’s a dope rhymer
collaborate, with the golden state
in a yellow six deuce with the purple plates
I dip and dodge, I hit 3 and roll
fish and chips, bounce pass down to Pau Gasol
we dont give a damn bout the big 3
LA Lake show we bout to 3 peat
and you can bet, thats on the set
Ron Artest about to get wet
Im on the flo’ and thats a fact
sittin’ next to uncle Jack….

Or just listen for yourself (note — lyrics are NSFW, as you would expect with Snoop, so if you are easily offended don’t hit play).
