Kobe Bryant's Cameo In Chinese Smart Car Commercial

Kobe Bryant will save the arts? Gallerists are drawn to Smart cars? The message of this Chinese commercial isn't obvious, but the fast-paced Los Angeles chase scene uses the absurdity to its advantage. The Lakers star plays a mischievous version of himself, driving past the right place at the right time in his hypercompact Smart BRABUS. We hear he prefers Ferraris in real life, but he gets the job done in this well-choreographed sequence that feels straight out of a Stephen Soderbergh film.
