Kobe Teams With Jackass Crew For Another Fake Jump
Uh...right. No one was fooled the first time and no one will be fooled the second time. Everyone knows the lawyers, handlers and insurance companies behind superstars such as Kobe Bryant would never allow a person of Bryant's stature and worth to engage in stunts such as jumping over a moving Aston Martin or performing a jump shot over a pool full of live snakes. It's just not going to happen.
So, aside from the fact it's mildly amusing to watch these stunts, does Nike actually think anyone is going to believe these stunts are actually real events, un-aided by support wires, trick camera work and serious digital editing? Is it any surprise there's a camera cut the second before Kobe lifts off?
Oh wait. Of course they realize everyone will know it's fake. Why else would they replay the whole thing is clearly-fake slow motion? Anyway, seeing the jackass guys attempt and fail is far more amusing so maybe it's all good after all.
