Kobe Bryant and Aston Martinís


Sometimes celebrities do things that make us want to scream and sometimes they do things that make us want to point and laugh. In a web film released back in 2008, Kobe Bryant made us cover our mouths and say, ďOh !Ē This film portrayed Kobe Bryant jumping Ė no trampoline, no bouncy surface Ė over a speeding Aston Martin DB9 Volante. The fans went nuts!
Now, two years after this film was released, Kobe Bryant and Aston Martin have teamed up to introduce the Nike Kobe Bryant (Aston Martin Edition) footwear pack. This footwear pack includes the Nike Hyperdunk (Aston Martin DB9 Edition) and the Nike Zoom Kobe V (Aston Martin Edition). These limited edition trainers were inspired by the DB9 and the One-77 supercar, detailing the elegance of the Aston Martin with some good old-fashioned sneaker craftsmanship. And we thought automakers would just continue to make timepieces and apparel.

The limited edition Nike Kobe Bryant (Aston Martin Edition) footwear pack will be introduced at the Nike Basketball Signature Space at the Staples Center, Los Angeles on May 13, 2010. To be honest, we donít really think the shoes look anything like the amazing supercar they were inspired by, unless, of course, the silver color is taken into account, but we still wouldnít turn down a pair.

The great thing about this event is that all event proceeds will be donated to the LA84 Foundation. The LA84 Foundationís mission is ďto serve youth through sport and to increase knowledge of sport and its impact on peopleís livesĒ. They have been providing this service since 1985 when they were blessed with a surplus from the 1984 Los Angeles Olympic Games

Did you notice he was standing on the line on that last one and the car was over from it? lol, you know they are not going to allow him to actually perform the stunt.

Each one of the slow motion takes both the jumper and the car are in different locations with each view. Nice try, next time don't supply reference lines and it may look more real.

yeah, that's what I saw as well. And for some reason, even IF the visual cues were removed, there was something about the frontal camera view (facing the jumper) that just looked completely "cut and paste". the video of the car looked fine, but jumper animations didnt fit the flow of a regular jump.
