Kobe Bryant in a wacky little Chinese hip-hop video

Kobe China

Well, you don’t see this every day. Thank God.

During All-Star Weekend Kobe did an interview with Chinese media (in the media interview/work room) pushing Sprite and some other products, and I don’t remember much because I was doing my very, very best to tune out the annoying interviews (eventually going to the Miles Davis Pandora channel and headphones). But I remember a few questions about Jay Chou and thinking “I don’t know who that is but Kobe could look pretty silly in a cheesy Chinese video.”

Well, here you go. This song is... look, I’m no musical expert, but it seems about as smooth as the first half of the NCAA title game between Butler and UConn. Kobe looks... well, he’s often not clutch in music videos, either. And only the guys at The Basketball Jones could find something like this.
