I saw this commercial for the new Guitar Hero for the first time yesterday, and I was completely unprepared for what happened.  You get the Risky Business motif right away, and then A-Rod, Tony Hawk, and Michael Phelps — the world’s best in their respective sports — slide into view and look like dorks.  That much I understand.  That much I expect that from A-Rod and Phelps.

But then Kobe comes out as the singer, and holy hell he really sells it.  For a guy who’s always so cold and calculated — from the hardcourt to Colorado hotel rooms — I have to say, I was really impressed.  Although I would have been more impressed if he was only wearing tighty-whiteys.  C’mon, I can’t be the only one who wants these men wearing fewer clothes!  Hello?  Anyone?
