Kobe Makes a Surprise Appearance in Nike's Play Russian Campaign

As Kobe Bryant makes his return to the court following an Achilles injury, Nike introduces the latest version of its “Play Russian” campaign featuring the 5-time World Champion.  Just in time for a bit of comeback inspiration, the 15 second film sees Kobe watching how Russian athletes in this campaign push themselves to new limits as they embrace the cold.

Physical, digital and social media activations will inspire and enable athletes at any level to live out their Russian spirit, even when the temperature drops far below zero.c
