Kobe Jumps Over A Car! Computer Trick, Cool Trick, or Irresponsible?!??

It's a weekend, so here's something completely trivial, yet pretty interesting nonetheless. Check out LA Lakers guard Kobe Bryant hurdling a speeding car in his latest Nike commercial.

I've watched this one a few times, and seen some internet discussion. Many think it's a computer trick and there's no way a man can jump over a speeding car. Some say it's completely plausible, given the car's height and Kobe's leaping ability. I know the answer, but I'm not telling.

Either way, I think we can all agree that this, much like GhostRiding The Whip, is sure to spawn legions of suburban YouTube copycats, some of whom will undoubtedly ether themselves get roughed up in the process.

What do you think?

Question: Is Kobe's Nike HyperDunk commercial real or a computer trick? Is this merely mindless fun or a fatal accident just begging to happen?
