Am bummed about Jeremy endorsing KFC...would have preferred that he endorse a healthier lifestyle...


Well, to view it from another perspective, Jeremy may not be endorsing KFC food (even though we all know he loves eating chilly chicken wings). :P

As KFC China puts it, he is going to be just strictly a basketball ambassador/image spokesperson for KFC China's national youth 3-on-3 basketball tournament. As Samuel Su Jingbin (President of the China Division for Yum! Brands, Inc) said in the press conference, they picked Jeremy for his clean image, his Linsanity story and his ever persisent pursuit of excellence, and believes he will be a great role model and inspiration to many young basketballers in China.

In the press conference, Jeremy also told Chinese young basketballers never to give up pursuit of their dreams and have to persist in developing good work ethics and work hard to improve on their games.


KFC is a good endorsement for Lin. you know this but for those of us in America KFC is the behemoth of China. it's 3x larger than McDonald's over there.

its parent Yum makes about as much profit from China as from the US and growth is much larger in China. the China market has made it the biggest fast food company in the world passing McD.

they had a bad 2nd quarter in China this past year though. maybe this endorsement is a response to that

He may not be explicitly endorsing the food, but his name association with the KFC brand is close enough. I have the same issue with Olympic athletes (and the Olympics in general) who endorse or receive sponsorship from places like McDonald's or Coca-Cola..
Well, I think the whole celeb endorsement deal is weird..

I mean, Jeremy drives a BENZ.

But, now he's endorsing Volvo? Has he ever even personally driven a Volvo in his life? And does he now have to drive a Volvo, instead of his Benz??

also the president of KFC China and vice chair of Yum is Taiwanese Sam Su

it's possible that he wanted to throw an endorsement to a fellow Taiwanese and try to make him even more famous in mainland china

I think one reason NBA players and other black athletes shy away form endorsing fried chicken is because it's fried chicken. I mean did it make sense for African Hakeem Olajuwon to endorse Taco Bell?

there's some logical reasons why Lin would hook up with KFC in China

[size=117]Jing-Shyh "Sam" Su is BIGGER than just President of KFC China; he was President of the China Division of the Yum! Brands since 1997, and was appointed Chairman & CEO in May 2010, while maintaining his position as Vice Chairman of the Board at Yum! Brands.

YEAH KFC is MUCH MUCH MORE SUCCESSFUL than McDonald in China, 3 time its size (over 2900 QSRs vs 1100 of MCDs) and revenue (US$ 3.6 B vs US$ 1 B) if I'm not mistaken. [color=darkred] [b]KFC

My white friends in China likes going to KFC. It's funny that black athletes shy away from endorsing KFC because of they're afraid to be laughed at.

first of all Chinese are very xenophobic, suspicious, with tremendous insecurities and corruption. you need someone who can appease the insecurities and navigate the cultural insularity.

no one nationality is more xenophobic/suspicious/corrupt than the Japanese, followed by SK.

it's laughable for someone who has never travel abroad to parrot such nonsense :oops:

HK folks have been doing business with the mainland since the 1960 /70s.

:lol: :lol: the dizzying height of ignorance; HK folks have been doing business with the mainland since the 1960 /70s.

eg, HKer Gordon Wu's Hopewell had been dealing w the Mainlanders on infrastructure projects since the 1970s

Taiwan didn't interact with the Mainland until much later
