I"ve watched it 10 times and I can"t tell if it was trick photography or not. Look for a lot of copycat injuries though.

obviously fake. blue screen or something to that effect. anyone who tries to do it for real deserves to get hit by a car.

Not real- yes, the fact that it`d go against his contract WOULD stop him. Anyone who thinks otherwise is an idiot. He wouldn`t jeopardize his career for a stunt like that, anyway. Murry, the Lakers already clinched the Pacific division title. Have fun with the Suns going one and done in the playoffs, though.

hmmmmmm.... I am no expert or anything but how come Kobe`s shadow is streched soooo long and the car`s so short (like the car was done midday and his hours earlier or later?)

Yes it is fake. Im not saying Kobe cant do it. Im saying Nike wont risk injuring him after the millions they spent on him. Its green screen technology. He jumps as high as he can and they tape a car going fast, piece it together and done.

By the way, I`m saying it`s fake cause he puts the shoes right up to the camera so you can clearly see what he`s wearing.

this isnt fake your all idiots, that cars only like 4 feet tall at its max height any idiot can jump that high it just takes alot of balls to do it in front of a car but thats very possible and like very real to me i see nothing that proves otherwise

its real.. those cars are not that tall

besides, who cares if his contract doesnt allow him to do so

am sure the bengals dont let their players go off and do hit and runs and poo like that
but yet they go on and do so

thechase136, what are you talking about? you HAVE clear proof that there IS a driver, you even circled him and everything? i mean what did you think you were circleing? huge minivan sized headrests in a sports car. thats the driver, if that was the head rest the drivers head would be projected ABOVE the windsheild. what purpose would that serve?
PLUS this is a real video, Kobes been on shows like Ellen and the like showing what he can do. its not a great mircle anyways.
and everyone who says his contract wouldnt let him do this, think again, he probably has a contract BECAUSE of this.

Yeah, like the Lakers are gonna let a guy do that who gets paid 20 million a year... good thing his wife wasn`t driving though, she might`ve aimed for him.

Look, no driver: http://img405.imageshack.us/img405/8618/kobepp5.jpg

Kobe Bryant is the best basketball player in the NBA and all those that keep talking poo about him need to get your heads out of your asses. Suns won`t win the Pacific, they suck. Kobe passes the ball. All of you must be mentally retarded.

ITS FAKE!!!! I heard it on Espn, it is obvious. That is green screen technology. Kobe Bryant CAN jump over a car, but that is way to much money involved.

And I was going to get those shoes the Kobe V3 (I have the V2) but I didn`t like them, I went for the Jordan CPs. But the V3 are really lightweight (less than 1 pound)

there is an easy way to do that. just film a car driving past in one clip and in the other have kobe jump as high as he can. all you do then is splice the two together and the shadows and everything work out. ever seen the same person in a movie side by side. its the same thing.

there`s been people trying to, and video taping, car jumps like this before... so if a kid is stupid enough to think hes got jumps like Kobe, then whatever...
and i don`t think kobe was in much danger doing the stunt either really... (that is... if he did it... which he probably didn`t)

lol@"I got this!" That was hard to tell. I don`t think they would have allowed Kobe to do something like this. Insurance and all. Kind reminds me of that Mythbusters episode where they wouldn`t let Jamie do that Indiana Jones stunt. I tried slowing it down and comparing the shadows. It looks like he jumped over the car. However the people putting this together probably thought of the shadow thing too.

Not only is this fake. But there was a dateline special about TV influences, and there was a kid who did this exact thing because he saw kobe do it and was put in the hospital.

Ill try to find the video...

This is probably fake. Kobe doesn`t jump next to the car. Yeah he jumps at the extrem right but he`s still in front of it.

It`s just that it is a matter of hours to fake something like that.
This is a steady shot. no movement at all.
Just do the jump and the passing of the car separatly and there you go.
20 minutes of after effect, and done !

he definitly does NOT jump next to the car. you can clearly tell by the shadow of the lamppost. Also, Kobe`s shadow is not on the camera side of the car ever (you`d expect that if he jumped on the near-side of it).
As for the `no-driver` stuff... seriously? you`re that bad at watching the video? I dislike Kobe as much as the next guy, but if you wanna call this fake, think of another way he did it (ie 2 merged shots)

The passenger tire goes right over the top of the shadow from the street light that Kobe is standing in front of.

And do you honestly think that him not being allowed to do it would stop him? Really?

if you look right after he jumps you can see when he`s crouched down that he`s still bigger than the convertible

It must be the shoes.

The car was right besides him, but he did jump the whole lenght by his own power.

Yeah, because Kobe`s contract would TOTALLY allow him to do something risky like that...I`ll admit that I might be wrong, but I`m gonna call this one fake.
