Saving Private YaoA whole series of Chinese athletes Photoshopped into famous movie posters went online last night. At right, you're looking at the modified Red Army of (from left to right) Yi Jianlian, Yao Ming, Wang Zhi Zhi and Sun Yu.
How exactly the Chinese believe that a man of Yao's stature could storm the beaches at Normandy, I'm not sure.
But a few other excellent posters -- Yao as "Hancock" and "Shrek," Liu Xiang as "Spiderman" and Michael Phelps as "E.T." -- can be found here. Enjoy.
