Kobe Bryant’s visit to Ellen on Wednesday required him to show off his impressive acting skills.
The now-retired Laker helped Ellen DeGeneres pull off a hidden camera prank on an esthetician, telling her that he has an excessive sweating problem. Repeating what Ellen told him to say, Kobe tried to sell a jar of sweat from his game, and waxed poetically about his final game.
This is not uncommon; Ellen frequently has her guests help with pranks. Kobe’s was rather funny, though, considering his attitude.
In other news, he said he would like to pick up skiing, and that he’ll be starting off by taking a magic carpet with some small children. That’s worth of a Google Alert.
