    Why was the Lakers jersey blurred out at 1:55?

    At first, I thought it was a competing sponsor, but this is inside the Adidas store.

  • Brent Yen

    Not sure, does it has something to do with Nike?

  • real-dsb

    Hmm, here’s my theory: it was Kobe Lakers jersey.

    Apparently, Adidas is the official sponsor for all NBA apparel. http://www.nba.com/news/adidas_060412.html . If you buy any jersey from nba.com, it will have an Adidas logo, even for Nike-sponsored players like Kobe and LeBron.

    But since Kobe is individually sponsored by Nike, Nike won’t allow his name/jersey to be used in other brands’ ads. Makes sense.

  • Brent Yen

    I see…m…this makes sense indeed…

  • Good one :]

    The Adidas ‘Employee’ video has already got about 750,000 views. That’s more than his last video (Lindorsements) has received in about 3 weeks. I won’t be surprised if it passes 1,000,000 views today or tomorrow. I’ve attached a table giving the YouTube views of his videos, as of today.

    By the way, his video shot at Madame Tussaud’s has received more than 4,500,000 views. It’s no wonder that Whistle Stop wanted him to sign with them.

    (據某Adidas員工說:講真的 他那天的喬裝真的認不出他 還有黏痣什麼的 但是他真的豪可愛歐!!! 我們有很多同事明明站在旁邊還不知道他是書豪)
    LOL Don’t feel so bad now. According to some Adidas workers, JLin’s makeover was really good. They couldn’t even recognized him themselves to work side by side with him.

    I know. Just looked at some of his newer ones and they have all exceeded the previous ones within days. That was “Linsanity” itself:o)) I know I know JLin doesn’t like Lin puns.

    I am sure you never Lintended to use one 😛

  • Michael

    Lets just hope he won’t Linplode this next game….(shields up)

  • real-dsb

    just curious, are there any other athletes that have popular youtube videos/channels? Not counting their sports highlights videos, I mean youtube videos that they actually produce, talk, or act in.

  • real-dsb

    nice, how did you get this list? did you gather it manually, or is there an automatic way to get it?

  • real-dsb

    Yep, I’m almost certain now. They didn’t blur out Derrick Rose’s jersey… because Rose is sponsored by Adidas.

  • real-dsb

    things I learned:

    Lin prefers soccer over basketball
    His favorite basketball player is Derrick Rose
    He thinks Lin is shoddy bench player that still plays for the Rockets.
    Nobody buys Lin shirts–they can’t even give them away!

  • Arsenium12 .

    Hi real-dsb. … I just copied and pasted the information from Lin’s site into MS Word and did a bit of editing. It took a couple of minutes. Then I formatted the table and did a screen capture to produce the graphic.

  • I guess you can censor it yourself in the post :] with *** haha..
    The guy is happy with his 15-min of fame

  • Brent Yen

    According to the news of Lin joining Whistle SPortNetwork, there is none (that has 400,000 subscribers.)…..

  • Brent Yen

    It was professionally done….so…..

    One final thing (from me) about Jeremy’s video released today. Look at the “views” for other Adidas videos featuring superstars like Derrick Rose, Damian Lillard, and Dwight Howard. Obviously, this won’t be missed by the higher-ups at Adidas.
