Nike #KobeSystem VII Campaign

This cam­paign was ran by Nike in the first quar­ter of 2012 for Kobe Bryant’s shoe­line, the “Kobe VII”. Can’t beat humor and mega-stars.

Update
Nike Bas­ket­ball seems to have taken down the cam­paign videos from their YouTube channel.

KD Vs from Nike iD

I was this close “>” to get­ting them Air Jor­dan XI “Play­offs” aka. BREDs dur­ing yesterday’s release by Nike. But, no cookie for me. It would’ve been my very first Js. For real.

I never got into the AJ game as I couldn’t afford it going to school. That, and Js won’t do well in Track & Field, and Base­ball. As for Bas­ket­ball back in High School & Col­lege, I think the most expen­sive shoes I’ve worn were them CB34s haha. The price just didn’t jus­tify what I was into dur­ing the time; or what I needed more of. A wise friend told me once, try­ing to put things into per­spec­tive cost-wise, “you know how many Del Taco soft tacos you can get with that?“1 =)

Of Hamsters, and Blake Griffin?

It’s not news to most that KIA has been pro­duc­ing awe­some car com­mer­cials for the past cou­ple of years now. They have been boost­ing up their mar­ket­ing dol­lars with cre­ativ­ity and humor; and they have the increase in sale num­bers to prove it. Whether the star of the show are char­ac­ters from Yo Gabba Gabba, ham­sters, or a bas­ket­ball star on the rise—Blake Griffin.
