Watch Jeremy Lin Wear Hello Kitty Head, Play Pickup Basketball in Short Film (VIDEO)

By Melissa Siegel, Posted: 09/06/12 09:31AM EDT

Jeremy Lin may have been busy on his nine-day tour of Taiwan, but that did not stop him from having a little fun.

The Houston Rockets point guard, along with his brother, trainer and David Lee of the Golden State Warriors, starred in a short film directed by Peter Radovich of CBS Video. The movie documents Lin's attempt to sneak out of a hotel in Taiwan and play a pick-up basketball game on a local court.

The highlight comes at the start of the movie, when Lin and his posse are bored in their Taiwan hotel room. They want to leave, but Lin does not know how they will escape the media frenzy downstairs. So he decides to put on a giant Hello Kitty head as the group heads downstairs.

The group then goes to pick up David Lee in his hotel room, and the Warriors forward states that this is the third time a guy in a giant Hello Kitty head has come up to him since he's been in Taiwan.

This then makes us wonder: What kinds of friends does David Lee have in Taiwan?

Lin and the others then head to the Xinsheng courts, a popular local hangout, according to CBSSports (which first embedded the video on its website). Lin and the others then play an impromptu game of pickup basketball, which quickly attracts a large crowd.

At this point, Lin has removed the Hello Kitty head, so any hope of avoiding a media frenzy has disappeared. But it would have been mighty difficult (though perhaps more entertaining) for Lin to play basketball with the head still on.

At the end, Lin thanks all of his fans for showing their support, and he even tosses some of them shoes and other gear as he leaves.

The only unanswered question is: What happened to the giant Hello Kitty head? Did Lin save it for future late-night Taiwan adventures?
