I hear people calling one of them Kobe but I don't know either.

Kobe Bryant (basketball player) and Jimmy Kimmel (TV personality) are the two big ones. I would guess they're not very well-known outside the US.

Brad gets annoyingly excited and starts saying 'It's crazy!!' about anything these days, it's become his 'thing'. It's a trailer with C-List celebs shooting at each other ffs, it's one of the first ideas I woulda come up with if someone asked me to design an advert for a CoD game to demonstrate its popularity, I don't see the 'craziness' but whatever...

Kobe Bryant- The black guy holding the M-4 with the 203 
 
Jimmy Kimmel- The white guy with the Rocket Launcher

You gotta be kidding?! I'm in Australia, and everyone knows who Kobe is! I guess if you been locked in an underground dungeon then you probably don't know who they are. Kobe is only probably in the top 10 of NBA basketballers... EVER!

Have you ever considered the notion that some people don't give a shit about basketball? The only thing I know about Kobe is that Ali G once interviewed him.
 
I really don't know anything about these two guys.

I thought that nobody outside USA cared about basketball. I sure as hell don't know who Kobe is. The only basketball player I know is the dude in that film with cartoon animals, Michael Jordan.

Then call me an Australian who was also locked in an underground dungeon, since I don't know who Kobe is either.  Then again, I have no interest for basketball or any sportsperson in general.  Go figure.

This is easily the best video game commercial ever! I only recognize Kobe and Jimmy Kimmel though. Who are the others? Who is the guy at the end?!

Nobody. I think they are trying to show that you can play it with celebrities. In other words you do not know if that person you just fragged or got fragged by is a celebrity.

@MysteriousBob I like how you go on to ultimately prove his point by showing how you don't have to care about basketball to know who kobe bryant is.

I live in America, and I don't know anything about Soccer, but hell even I know that Spain won the World Cup, who David Beckham is, and Manchester United is one of the biggest sports teams in the world next to the Dallas Cowboys. How can you not know who Kobe Bryant is? (This is more of just a curiosity not a flame really).
 
Regardless, the commercial is just simply stating everyone plays the game online; from business people, to kids, to celebrities.

this, only knew who jimmy kimmel was. 
 
it is an awesome commercial. i think it is one of those memorial ones. while we're talking about commercials i think that there should be more great commercials like during the super bowl. super bowl commercials are the best ones out there. there are some great ones like black ops.

Just interesting how different cultures are and view "celebrity". He (Kobe Byrant that is, not so much Jimmy Kimmel) is like the Jesus of basketball at the moment, but I find it fascinating how you couldn't throw his name out here and not know who he is, but there is an unknown.
