Yao Ming Resurfaces To Preview A Sad, Sad Video Shoot

Jesus. What is this? There's Yao in a leg brace, perhaps never to emerge. There's a barren set with a dirty floor. A sinister-looking man dressed in black sits beside Yao in a high chair. Is this a shoot for an evil podiatry ad? Yao has yet to explain himself. But Nan from China is thrilled:

亲爱的姚明~~你的脚伤怎么样了?看到你的腿那样子好心疼啊!当运动员真的太辛苦了!我们都很关心你的伤,一定要早点恢复哦!期待在球场上再次看到你的身影!!!今天这个是要拍宣传片么?—我是在新加坡的留学生

期待在球场上再次看到你的身影, indeed.
