The Kobe-Gotye parody video you need to watch
Dribblers, meet Kobye.
Dan Rib, an apparently passionate Lakers fan, wrote, recorded and filmed a spoof of Gotye's hit single "Somebody That I Used To Know" called "The Kobe That We Used To Know."
It's clear in the music video that Rib isn't a fan of hero ball, as he constantly implores Bryant to stop heaving contested late shots. He suggests Bryant instead find teammates Pau Gasol or Andrew Bynum -- because they are "really tall" -- or Steve Blake or Ramon Sessions -- even though "they don't shoot so well."
As of 11:38 a.m., the video had 6,628 views on YouTube.
