Kobe Bryant was known as Xiao Fei Xia in China during the 2008 Beijing Olympics – or Little Flying Warrior.
And now that Little Flying Warrior is soaring in a new Chinese Sprite commercial, alongside Taiwanese pop-star/actor/song-writer/producer Jay Chou. [Seriously check out Chou’s resume — quite impressive for a guy who is only 31. You may know him from The Green Hornet.]
What ever happened to Grant Hill drinking Sprite and people missing dunks?
In an NBA world where numerous people are tagged with the “international superstar” title, Kobe truly embodies that term. The guy literally has lived in other countries and speaks numerous languages. You can see how comfortable he looks working with a foreign star like Chou in the video below. No matter what you think of Kobe, he is smooth.
