Bruce Willis, Danny Trejo & Kanye West Stop By For Cameos



The full length short film, "The Black Mamba," a collaboration between Nike, Kobe Bryant and director Robert Rodriguez has landed and it's....okay.

The sorta meta concept is a movie about the making of a movie, with Rodriguez pitching Bryant on a movie concept about a hero called "The Black Mamba," and as he describes it, we see what he envisions. Bryant squares off against a monster-fied Danny Trejo, runs into Bruce Willis seemingly reprising his role from "The Expendables" before doing a final battle against zombie looking basketball players commissioned by main baddie Kanye West. It fits very comfortably into the grindhouse wheelhouse for Rodriguez, so if you've worn out your "Machete" DVD this is probably worth a quick spin. Check it out below. [Nike]
