Kobe Bryant, Alex Rodriguez, Michael Phelps and Tony Hawk are rockin' out Tom Cruise style in a new ad. The athletes reenact the actor's classic Risky Business dance scene – the one in which he parades around a button-down shirt and white socks – for a commercial for Guitar Hero World Tour edition. The spot, directed by Brett Ratner, features the four sports legends jamming to Bob Seger's "Old Time Rock and Roll." Bryant sings the lead, A-Rod and Phelps are on guitar, and Hawk skateboards onto the scene with a drum set. Bryant really gets into it and even the normally coy Phelps gets loose. – Jessica Herndon
