Kobe Bryant’s commercial for Guitar Hero: World Tour

Guitar Hero is a series of music rhythm video games first released in 2005. Players have to use a guitar-shaped game controller and match notes that scroll on-screen to colored fret buttons on the controller.

Some users might not find Guitar Hero up to their liking; however, according to DigitalSpy blog,” The latest sequel would reportedly become the first game to generate more than $1 billion in sales. Its success was helped by the fact that it was available on most platforms, including – for the first time – the Wii, PS3, and PC.”
