As the new face of Adidas Store, Jeremy Lin went undercover recently posing as a new Adidas store employee. Although Lin is a pretty recognizable guy, he remained in character as a shoe employee.
Dressed in a full Adidas employee uniform complete with a staff tag, the LA Lakers guard conversed in fluent Taiwanese mandarin at the store, fooling several customers in the process. Some recognized him but was unsure if he was indeed the real Jeremy Lin, reports Local Pulse.
At the beginning of the video, Jeremy Lin introduced himself as Wang Wei-Chih. He said: “I am Jeremy Lin, and I’m at Adidas flagship store. Today is my first day at work, I’m gonna sell Adidas shoes. My name is Wang Wei-Chih.”
He was also heard saying that he didn’t play basketball but played football.
A Youtube commenter, Yuet Yee Chan, claimed she was so lucky to meet him while shopping.
