Kanye West and Kobe Bryant. Probably two of the most arrogant yet lovable black men of our generation. Okay, maybe not everyone loves them, but I’m not everyone. These two guys–along with Kid Cudi and Barack Obama–are easily the four black men that I idolize. But that’s a topic for another day, lol.
Anyway, this new installment of the Kobe System Commercials entitled, “Level 6 Beastion,” is hands down the funniest one yet. In fact, this is probably the funniest commercial that I’ve seen in the past year, and I’ve seen some funny commercials. I can’t stop laughing! The dialogue in the Level 6 Beastion commercial is just so cleverly done:
Kanye: How much more do you want from me?
Kanye: How much more successful do you want me to be?
Kobe: More successful.
Kanye: How many records can my records break?
Kobe: More records.
Kanye: B-but, I’m the best…
Kobe: But are you a different animal and the same beast?
Kanye: …What the fuck does that mean, Kobe Bryant?
Kobe: You’re welcome.
Kanye: What the fuck is he talking about?
LMAO! I love the fact that they both fully grasp how our society views them, and they’re playing off that perfectly. Two egos clash. I mean, imagine Oedipus asking Napoleon for advice or vice versa; it’d lead to a conversation just like this one! I’m pretty sure a lot of laughs were had during the filming of this commercial given how absurd it is!
Best comment on YouTube for this video! It plays off the snippet that Kanye sampled from Will Ferrel and Jon Heder’s “Blades of Glory” for the song “Niggas in Paris”. John Heder says, “I don’t even know what that means!” and Will Ferrel responds, “No one knows what it means, but it’s provocative; it gets the people going!”
And get the people going it does! This Level 6 Beastion commercial has just made me love Kanye West and Kobe Bryant that much more! Despite the nonsense that Kobe Bryant is going through right now, it’s dope to see him still having some fun. Maybe that’s a bad thing? I dunno. Get on the Kobe System!
