LeBron Out, But Puppet Ads Will Continue

And we can only imagine the things puppet Kobe might say now: “‘This is about celebrating two of the game’s best players and giving fans a glimpse into their personalities, not only on the court, but away from the game,’ Nike spokesman Kejuan Wilkins said. Nike has run six of the puppets spots so far and plans to continue to introduce new ones throughout the Finals, which begin on Thursday night.”

    “giving fans a glimpse into their personalities, not only on the court, but away from the game” – he does realize that these are puppets and not actual representations of the players, right? Because if Kobe and Lebron are that annoying in real life, no thanks.

    Based on “Kobe Doin Work,” I actually think Kobe is probably that annoying off the court.

    Translation: “We spent a boatload of money on this campaign, and we’re not letting something as minor as reality intercede.”
