Godzilla Vs. Charles Barkley

Godzilla vs Nike

In 1992 Godzilla was asked to star in a Nike commercial opposite NBA star Charles Barkley. This wasn’t an ordinary game of basketball though, and it wasn’t an ordinary Godzilla, as you’ll see from the video.

What’s great about this video is that you also get a little behind-the-scenes action. Sadly, no matter how many times you watch it, Godzilla always loses.

One thought on “Godzilla Vs. Charles Barkley

  1. What’s so hilarious about this clip is that it seems like Godzilla wears sneakers in the new movie. Those who have seen it will know what I mean. Best part about this commercial? It led to the Barkley vs. Barney game on SNL.
