Yao thinks differently

Rockets center and budding cultural phenomenon Yao Ming has done a TV commercial for Apple Computers:

The ad, first shown Tuesday at the semi-annual Macworld trade show, features Yao and Verne Troyer, the actor who plays Mini-Me in the Austin Powers films.

Seated on an airliner, Yao pulls out a PowerBook notebook computer with a 12-inch screen. Troyer pulls out his own PowerBook with a 17-inch screen and begins watching the movie Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon. As Yao looks on with envy, the two smile at each other.

You will be able to download this ad at www.yaoming.net shortly (according to the article, it's not operational yet). Get on the bandwagon now, folks.
