On August 23, Kobe’s birthday… Nike released a new commercial that is nothing short of inspiring.
The commercial is being narrated by Kendrick Lamar, and the ad is titled Better. The commercial asks the viewers to apply Kobe’s commitment to excellence to everything in their lives.
Kobe Bryant taught us to be better-a better scorer, better GOAT, better father. His philosophy of #MambaMentality changed the game and continues to inspire athletes like Serena Williams, Anthony Davis, Sydney Leroux, Diana Taurasi and Sky Brown today.- Nike
To me, the video was super inspiring. It teaches you no matter if its sports, social change, teaching others, or being a parent, imagine a world where everyone worked to their fullest potential to be the best they can be. Just as Kobe.
The end of the commercial closed with Bryant’s retirement speech, which he ended with “Mamba out.” Kobe’s death shocked the nation, this commercial gives fans something inspiring to hold on to. It’s a good day to reflect on the things that are important in life and cherish what we have.
