Sometimes life can truly imitate art in the scariest ways.

Kobe Bryant was one of the most impactful NBA stars in American history, sporting not only multiple championships wins with the Lakers, but also a loving family and dedicated fan base.

Following his untimely death in a helicopter crash alongside his daughter Gianna Bryant and seven other victims, footage surfaced of an old commercial featuring Kanye West and Kobe Bryant from 2011 that had Kobe throwing a basketball at a helicopter that Kanye was on, only for it to explode.

That is freaky and scary.

Kanye West sent a tribute to basketball great Kobe Bryant following the tragic news:

“Kobe, We love you brother,” West began his Twitter post on Sunday.

Among others sharing their thoughts and prayers to Bryant’s family were Reese Witherspoon, Taylor Swift, Drake, Chrissy Teigen, Jimmy Kimmel, Justin Bieber, Khloe Kardashian and many others.
