Kobe Bryant in new smart car commercial with an elephant, child dressed like peanut (VIDEO)

May 27, 2014, 12:59 PM EDT

This is Kobe Bryant in a commercial that feels like the old Monkey’s TV show.

Kobe is pitching the small Smart Car and doing so by driving a child dressed like a peanut around the back lot of a movie studio as they try to avoid a hungry elephant. Is the fact a smart car can’t outrun a lumbering elephant really a selling point? Anyway, amusing commercial so we pass it along, letting you know what Kobe has been up to besides knee rehab.

Hat tip to Mark Medina of the Los Angeles Daily News, who is Mr. Smart Car.

UPDATE: While I hadn’t seen it before, apparently this ad is a couple years old.

    Wow… that commercial was just bad. Awkwardly bad acting.

      It’s a cheesy script in general. Asian TV ads are pretty eccentric for the most part.

    The lakers will still win less than 30 games.
