Kobe Bryant stars in a new Italian Nike ad that promotes… well… the Black Mamba (we think).

The Black Mamba fights crime, plays basketball and walks away from explosions without turning back.

Enzo G. Castellari, cult Italian director of 70’s exploitation movies, introduces us to a hidden treasure taken from his filmography, Milano Kalibro Kobe.

The short movie, discovered in the basement of the director’s house, tells the story of the epic struggle between the law enforcement and a gang of ruthless thiefs and how the battle between evil and good takes a twist for the better thanks to the intervention of Black Mamba, international man of action and incredible baller.
