Watch: Vintage Kobe Bryant Ad Uses Napalm Death’s “Suffer the Children”
Napalm Death seem to just be in the ether today. In addition to announcing a North American tour with Aborted, Tombs, and WVRM, the band’s 1990 album, Harmony Corruption, showed up in a new workout video from Andrew W.K. (seriously)… and now Earache, the label that released Harmony Corruption, reminds us that a track from that album, “Suffer the Children,” was used in this 1995 Adidas commercial starring Kobe Bryant, who was just a 17-year-old NBA rookie at the time.
Bryant, you are likely aware, tragically died yesterday in a helicopter crash, along with his 13-year-old daughter, Gianna, and seven other people. He was only 41 years old.
You can check out the commercial below.
