Did The Nike Count On Kobe Commercial Jinx His Ankle

Back in January Nike and ad agency W+K, Portland created the awesome "Count on Kobe" Nike Basketball ad, but now looking back on it did they inadvertently jinx the NBA star?

"This is how the world works" are the first words we hear as the poetic voice goes on to say..."The sun shines. The grass grows. Kobe Bryant arrives to practice at 3 … the other 3" and when we get to the "Earthquakes shake. Bakers bake" line the jinx is in...just saying.
