Few athletes have embraced the role of villain quite like Kobe Bryant. But when you remember how dominant he was at the peak of his career, you can understand why the boos so often rang down from the rafters whenever he came to town.

In the commercial, Kobe hits a game winner and starts to hear the boos. In typical Kobe fashion, he embraces it and begins to conduct the chorus:
