Known to some as the "Mini Michael Jordan," Mani Love is a 4'5" street baller from Harlem. Today, the social media sensation went viral when a video of him breaking the ankles of a woman in the middle of the New York City streets circulated on Twitter. While the clip is certainly worthy of a laugh, some speculated that the stunt was staged.

It turns out that Love did take part in the video as an advertisement for Nike and the brand's new Kyrie 3 sneaker. In his own version of the video on Instagram, Love said that he's proud to be working with the Nike.

The "Black Ice" Kyrie 3 released this past Monday and is available in select sizes at nike.com and Eastbay.
