    okay.. im not gonna lie... its easy to tell he jumped next to the car.. but in reality he woulda cleared it anyway.. and only an idiot would actually do it.. and if i were him i wouldnt risk my entire career to sell some shoes.. so good job kobe.. you can do it.. smart job not standing in from of a speeding car when your job requires the use of your legs.. now just learn how to pass.. ha

    OF COURSE IT WAS FAKE, you really think he`d jeoperdize that 18 million per year contract with that? It was a viral commercial for Nike, and a good one at that. Anyone who thinks it was real is just daft. My wife thought it was real by the way.

    The car is coming in at an angle. Below are two frames superimposed. You can see that when the car gets to where he was standing, it lines up with your white line perfectly.

    Quite trying to fake Kobe faking!

    It is NOT FAKE!!!

    WAY TO PROVE IT>>

    LOOK @ THE SHADOW OF THE SIGNPOST ON THE GROUND WHERE HE STARTS HIS JUMP, AND PAUSE WHEN THE CAR GETS TO IT, YOU WILL SEE HE CLEARLY DOES JUMP THE CAR!

    It was actually done in front of a blue screen. If you look carefully you will see that the shadow of what appears to be a light post, does not cast on him when he walks in its path. His shadow is a slightly different shade than the other shadows. Also the car is sliding sideways a little. One last thing and this is only my thoughts but why would he have the camera on a tripod and not have one of his hangers on doing the filming. Other than that it makes me want to get a pair of those shoes so I can jump like Kobe.

    I too thought it looked blue-screened, especially right before the car comes. It`s hard to explain WHY it looks that way, but something just isn`t quite right.

    By the way, the shadow from the light post DOES pass in front of him. It`s easier to see on the version with no text taking up the whole screen.

    THE JUMP IS REAL!! The car is fake. Kobe CAN jump over a car, but they aren`t risking it. Trust me, to jump over that is not as hard as it looks. But they arent going to risk an injury. The jump is real, the car is added on.

    I think the main question is, who cares? Can`t we get back to finding more ways to Rick-roll the Mets? Or other sport teams for that matter?

    i said it yesterday... the lamp post shadow shows he doesn`t jump next to the car... and kobe`s shadow isnt on the car either. I don`t think it was blue screened, and i think kobe could do the stunt w/out much risk... but id bet they just took 2 shots (jump w/ no car, and car w/ no jump) and merged em..

    That explanation definitely did not prove anything, i know its not real but not sure how it was done, but the ground does seem kind of strange, its just a weird shade of gray with no detail.....just seems to me like a new smart marketing ploy by the shoe company, free advertising on youtube=$$$$$

    Jimmer, its not the vertical part people question. Kobe can probably clear a 4 foot car. Its the fact that there is a moving car gunning towards him.

    well in that case just give it to Garnett his team is no 1 in the NBA

    thats no argument gasol is being injured Bynum hasnt even played since like early december...

    and if it was up to talent the nuggets wouldnt lose a game.. with all of them freakers

    and if giving to the guy with the best team (meaning talent wise)wasnt the case, why did they give to steve nash the past two years. i mean he had Amare, Marion, diau, all staer defender on Bell, kobe deserves it give it to kobe

    i thought the video was fake the first time i saw it...the car just looked unreal but when i looked closer at this, you say theres a foot of space, but the car is driving straight at him
    if u stop the video about a second after he jumps, the car is lined up with the shadow of the sign, where Kobe was standing before he jumped

    geez is it just me or does everyone have short memories???

    go about a year back, coincidently also another amateur style video of ronaldinho putting on the same brand of boots (nike)on, and then he starts juggling the football and from 18 yards out he shoots, hits the crossbar and the ball comes back to him perfectly and he repeats this

    anyone who follows or knows anything about football knew straight away that video was fake

    this is just the american audience version of the ronaldinho video with kobe bryant instead

    the reason the ronaldinho video became so big is because idiots believed it was real, and it created a big debate, but any real football fan knew it was fake otherwise ronaldinho would be scoring 5 goals a game if he was that good

    now nike`s marketing campaign has worked again by causing the same debate but with kobe bryant instead because of all the idiots who believed it to be real

    Ok, firstly, this video does not prove that that jump was fake at all.
    Secondly, it`s not that surprising. Basketball players CAN jump over cars the long way standing still, much less a car that`s moving.
    But, the only thing that would be fake, is that how could Kobe be risking some stunt like this?
