Has Shrek always borne a striking resemblance to Yao Ming? Or is it the other way around? These movie posters of Olympic athletes, (well, the Chinese team and Michael Phelps) were posted on Chinese web site Mop.com and brought to our attention by Chinasmack.
We think that the Hancock poster’s text, which originally read: “There are heroes, there are superheroes, then there’s Hancock” has gotten a fresh new ring to it: “In the Olympic games, there is a Chinese hero, and he is a superman”. Mighty praise for Yao Ming but even he did not save China from a crushing defeat by Greece. In the meanwhile, the posters featuring hurdler Liu Xiang have lost a bit of their sheen with Liu pulling out of the Olympics.
