"Some take souls... some take scalps," actor Bruce Willis tells Kobe Bryant amidst a basketball court set ablaze. "The Boss takes shoes."

"The Boss" in question is Kanye West, who appears alongside Willis, Bryant and "Machete" actor Danny Trejo in Bryant's explosion-filled new Nike commercial.

The ad (below) is a trailer for a short Nike film called "The Black Mamba" directed by Robert Rodriguez ("Machete," "Grindcore," "Sin City")

Bryant plays the Black Mamba, the "world's best basketball player," whose shoes are apparently the source of his power. "Like Mike," anyone?

"The Black Mamba ain't nothin'!" Kanye cries. "I'm the Boss!"

Yep, sounds like classic Yeezy to us.
