"The Black Mamba" is about Kobe Bryant's new shoes, but it's also about a series of explosions that require no explanation.
In the run-up to the All-Star game, Nike used clips from the film for commercials to hype Bryant's Zoom Kobe VI. It took two days to film in LA.

Yes, we get to see the new kicks, but "The Black Mamba" also includes appearances by Danny Trejo (Machete) and Bruce Willis (every action movie). We won't tell you how it ends, except to say it doesn't end well for The Boss, played by Kanye West (Taylor Swift's MTV Video Music Awards speech).
During the film, Bryant faces fire, explosions, mutant ballers and "The Boss."
At Staples Sunday, Bryant delivered a record-tying performance en route to capturing his fourth MVP award by dropping 37 points and grabbing 14 rebounds to lead the Western Conference to a 148-143 win over the East in the NBA All-Star Game.
