Nike's New LeBron/Kobe Puppet Commercials = Basically Amazing

Nike unveils new ad campaign featuring Kobe and LeBron puppets. Classic...


Voiced by David Alan Grier and Kenan Thompson--who skyrocketed in The Buzz's book with this career-salvaging voice-over tour de force--the ads feature Kobe Bryant and LeBron James puppets who room together. The ads are hilarious and harken back to Chris Rock's Li'l Penny Days before Penny Hardaway just became plain Anfernee.

Bravo, Nike. Bravo.
