Nike continues to march forward with one of the greatest marketing campaigns ever with two new clips from the MVPuppets (and Lil’ Dez). Still riding high from their holiday domination of Blitzen and company, this set of visuals focuses mainly on Kobe, his new shoe (Nike Zoom Kobe V) and, of course, his four championship rings. A house fire too, but what’s a few burnt up pair of kicks between friends, right?
Any new material from the stuffed superstars is good and all, but I’m personally waiting on the All-Star Weekend commercials. With Kobe and LeBron boasting multiple All-Star Game MVP’s, that could make for an interesting spoof. Hell, being the cash cow Phil Knight and his goons are, I’m expecting a Superbowl commercial as well. It’s not like they don’t have the money for a time slot.
