This came on during one of the baseball games Wednesday night, and needless to say, I was a little ticked.
OK, Kobe. Michael Jordan doesn't have hair, and he DOESN'T play for the Lakers. A crappy Wizards team, sure, but NOT the Lakers. 1991, guy. 1991.
That's actually a pretty cool commercial, though. Especially Kobe's little smirk after Jordan blocks a virtual (is that what you call them? Clearly I'm still in 1991-mode) Shaquille O'Neal(notes). Probably not what Kobe was laughing at during the commercial shoot, but it's a nice bon mot nevertheless.
Same with the James Edwards cameo. If I actually owned a video-game system besides the original NES, I might consider buying this one.
