Cool Bruce Lee Video

Fri Aug 28, 2009 11:51 pm

Ran across this today. I can not even imagine the coordination that is needed to do something like this. Looks like it is from an old instructional video. Not sure how long it has been around the internet though as I have never seen it before.

He was the greatest and we will never see anybody like him again. I love his movies. Thanks for sharing.

I have since found something that says this is actually not him, but a commercial put together for a Nintendo game. Either way, it is still pretty cool. It may be based on something he did previously though. Hard to say.

No, it's not the Little Dragon. I wish it were. I'm 48 years old and am still a Bruce Lee fan. Never get tired of watching his movies.  bigthumbsup

I bet it's fake. For one, the speed and "hardness" of the nunchucks would dent or crack the ball. Bruce Lee was good, but not that good.  Smile

Watching an A&E documentary on Lee, it's awesome! I love how when he was shooting his movies extras would challenge him to real fights to see if he was really that good and he kicked the crap out of all them! Then went right back to the task at hand with no hard feelings. Truly someone I wish we didn't lose so young.

He certainly was that good, and then some!

However, this video does not look genuine.

No RJ, unfortunately it's not. It's an advertisment for a Nokia phone. As a matter of fact, I have a copy of that video on my hard drive and watch it occasionally, thinking what could have been if the Little Dragon had lived.

But you are correct my friend, Bruce Lee most certainly was that good!

I'm just as a big a fan of Bruce Lee as anyone else BUT I can assure you he most definitely WAS NOT that good. If you watch some of the documentaries on him with clips of Making Of Enter the Dragon and other films you can clearly see him making numerous mistakes and repeated attempts to get 1 shot right. That said anyone else would have had a lot more trouble doing some of the nunchuck scenes he did and make them look as good as he did.

Regardless, the clip in question is a fake promo for Nokia and isnt real anyway, its pretty obvious.

However, the legend lives on.....!!!!
