"In 2024, we'll finally be in flying cars," says the 'SNL' alum. "I know that for a fact."

Lakers star Kobe Bryant and funnyman Will Ferrell are among the stars who have joined the city of Los Angeles' campaign to land the 2024 Summer Olympics.

In a nearly two and-a-half minute video released on Tuesday by the committee orchestrating the bid, Bryant, Ferrell, Jessica Alba and others answer the question: "Where will you be in 2024?"

"In 2024, we'll finally be in flying cars," said Ferrell. "I know that for a fact."

Bryant, who is retiring at the end of this season, said, "In 2024, we're going to be rolling."

Among the numerous picturesque shots of the city are numerous interludes with children who say they plan on competing in the 2024 Summer Olympics.

The video ends with Ferrell humming "Olympic Fanfare and Theme."

A host city will be selected by the International Olympic Committee in September 2017. Rome, Paris and Budapest are seen as the top global contenders vying to host the 2024 games.
