Kobe Bryant's awesome new World Cup ad for Panini (Video)


The World Cup is just a couple of months away and the anticipation for the event is ramping up. That includes prominent athletes in other sports making World Cup related commercials like this new ad from Los Angeles Lakers star Kobe Bryant.

That add shows Kobe playing soccer as a child intertwined with clips of him shooting hoops as an adult comparing the struggles of basketball to the same issues with soccer as a child. Hitting post to hitting rim, and the feeling of hitting net in both.

Remember Kobe grew up in Italy while his father was playing basketball so he is not only familiar with soccer on the large stage but a fan. The ad is for Panini and ends with Kobe talking about the World Cup related collectable products being offered.
