Posted: December 24th, 2009

As a head out for a week of vacation, I leave you with some holiday cheer courtesy of the Nike MVPs.

This is crazy.

In their latest commercial, the Kobe Bryant and LeBron James puppets are joined by Santa as they play a pick-up game against the reindeer Blitzen and his crew.

Now what I love about it is Santa’s voice is no other than the legendary KRS-1. Blitzen is rapper Lupe Fiasco. So you got old school/new school Hip Hop fusing with Nike and the two best players in the world in Kobe and LeBron.

“The game is over. The game is over.” is a spin off the KRS-1 classic, “The Bridge is Over.”

See for yourself. I love it. And yes, I’m like everyone else. Can’t wait to wake up Christmas Day to watch Kobe and LeBron go at it in Los Angeles. It’s on.
