He Does It Again: The Jeremy Lin Wax Statue Prank FTW (Video)
If you thought that Madame Tussaud’s in San Francisco was missing a Jeremy Lin wax statue…so did Jeremy Lin. In another of his glorious line of pranks, Lin took to the tourist trap to pose as a Jeremy Lin wax statue, only to scare the crap out of those that cozied up to him/it.
At some point, he’s going to want to start playing some basketball this offseason for his Lakers gig, but I don’t know if we’re ready to wave off the pranks that he’s given us for the past few months. They’ve been pretty gold.
Why the sudden renaissance of fun from Mr. Lin? Well, he had quite the run in the limelight of New York during his Knicks run, and he probably craves attention. You know, like an infant would. Just kidding. He’s a pretty cool guy, and we could use him as a counterpoint to the uber-competitive Kobe Bryant, who appears to be in the twilight of his career.
Here’s the video of the tourists getting owned by the Jeremy Lin wax statue:
That’s what you get for going to a city that’s as cultured as San Francisco, then spending your time in a tacky chain museum. Gonna grab some Planet Hollywood after that, chief?
