Kevin Hart Remixes Skee-Lo’s ‘I Wish’ [Video]
The original whiny track, which finds Skee-Lo wishing he was a little bit taller, wishing he was a baller and wishing he had a good looking girl (so he could call her), was flipped by Hart to promote ESPN’s NBA coverage on Christmas day, per Billboard.
In the spot, the 5-foot, 2-inch comedian is being picked on by Ice Cube , his ‘Ride Along’ co-star, for lacking basketball playing abilities. Hart then launches into his version of ‘I Wish,’ which includes how having height would change his life.
The visual features cameos from Carmelo Anthony, Chris Paul and Kobe Bryant. “I wish I was a little bit taller / wish I was a baller / wish I could throw it down like Andre Iguodala,” Hart raps.
