Funniest Kobe Bryant Interview? Yes Sir!

Here in Los Angeles, we love our Lakers especially when they win. So when they lose we don’t fall short in showing our disappointment. This is especially true when it comes to Kobe Bryant; he is the franchise player after all. He has developed somewhat of a bad reputation of getting what he wants at the expense of what’s best for the team.

What’s shown above is a parody mocking him his interviewing comments regarding the state of the Lakers as the series with the Mavs progressed. As all of you should know the Lakers were demolished 0-4 in the series. The sketch is pretty damn funny. The video doesn’t have much to do with advertising per se, it’s more of a commentary of popular culture, branding (Pay attention to Gatorade), and the value we place on athletes and celebrities. After all, we love’em when they are doing well but hate’em when they are not. Kobe will probably be loved again what’s the next season starts. But for now we’ll make fun of him.

So enjoy, the credits for the video are below. The video was sent to me by a friend and I had to share it here, on ITA.
