In a new Apple commercial that debuted during Sunday’s Lakers-Rockets game, Michael B. Jordan roasts Kobe Bryant about his battle with “father time.”

Jordan, who starred in Creed, is getting ready to play Kobe in a movie about the soon-to-be retired Laker’s life. He then continually grills him as the conversation progresses, and Kobe kicks him out of the trailer. 

“It’s all ascension” is the perfect quote.

“I’m playing you all the way through, with makeup and prosthetics and all that.”
