In this Nike commercial, director Robert Rodriguez pitches NBA star Kobe Bryant an idea for an action film in which Bryant's alter-ego, The Black Mamba, is being pursued by a crime lord known only as "Boss" who wants to get his hands on Mamba's shoes.
Near the beginning of the drag race with Julie's hair on fire, in a wide shot from the front of the cars, Julie's friend can be seen with her sweater on Julie's head before she's seen taking off that sweater to put out the fire a few moments later. See more »

A very entertaining quickie TV movie with a strong performance from David Arquette.
For a quickie TV movie 'Roadracers' is a hell of a lot of fun. Robert Rodriguez made this homage to AIP in between his astonishing low budget debut 'El Mariachi' and its disappointing sequel 'Desperado'. David Arquette's performance really makes this one work. I often find Arquette's stoner characters to be irritating but he's quite different here, and really good. His greaser character Buddy must decide between playing guitar in a rock'n'roll band or playing the hand destiny has dealt him in a small town that despises him. Rodgriguez regular Salma Hayek plays Arquette's girlfriend, and his geeky best friend who is obsessed with 'Invasion Of The Body Snatchers' is played by John Hawkes who you will probably remember from the opening sequence of 'From Dusk Til Dawn'. And then there's William Sadler as the sheriff who detests Buddy. Sadler's always good no matter what he's in. I can't argue that this is a great movie but it is a very entertaining one, and worth tracking down.
