Sorry Celtics fans, it’s all about the Lakers right now after they took Game 1 of the NBA Finals last night. Not only are people buzzing about the game, there was at least one commercial that caught everyone’s eyes… and ears.
In Nike’s tribute to the Lakers win, basketball greats – past and present – celebrate Kobe Bryant’s quest for a fifth championship ring and Andre 3000 sings his praises to an old Beetles beat, “All Together Now”.
As the LA Lakers played the Utah Jazz Saturday, Utah fans seized the opportunity to make fun of Kobe’s all white everything photo shoot by rocking similar outfits and carrying signs proclaiming: “Pilgrim Kobe is not welcome in Utah” and “Why you gotta steal my style?”
A few even got the best of Kobe’s dad, Jelly Bean Bryant, while he was being interviewed during the game. As he was discussing his son’s performance, a fan held a “Pilgrim Kobe” pic behind his back, in what has got to be “Pilgrim” Kobe’s 1st official television appearance… LOL!
