Photoshop found on Chinasmack
Speaking of internet celebrities, Brother Sharp aka “China’s sexiest homeless man,” has been doing pretty well for himself since he was discovered by Chinese netizens.
After appearing in a Guangzhou fashion show earlier this year and becoming the subject of an avante garde painting, he is now slated to have a movie based on his life.
According to CNN Go:
Mainland billionaire Yang Meimei announced that she plans to invest RMB 70 million in a movie about the extraordinary life of ‘Brother Sharp,’ a homeless man who became an internet sensation when a snapshot of him walking down the street was passed around as an example of homeless-chic style…
Hong Kong model-actor Carl Ng is rumored to be one of the possible actors to play Brother Sharp in the movie about the real life of the human internet meme. Apparently Ng and Sharp look somewhat alike.
Who knew there was such entertainment power in internet memes. Makes you wonder what’s next – a play about Shanghai’s prettiest bus ticket seller? Maybe a television series documenting the travails of Sister Feng as she tries to find her perfect husband?
