It's one thing to not already be a follower or subscriber to one of the most popular Asian acts in all of the interwebs, but it must be quite a huge rock to live under if you don't know Wong Fu AND have no idea what Glee is. As one of the winningest and most popular shows of this generation, Glee has propelled many young artists and stars to the limelight through the power of music; and with his 'pop and lock' moves that have already been featured in many Hollywood dance films like Step Up, Harry Shum Jr. has been no exception.
When you put all of this creative power together, it's easy to see why this is a big deal. And you can find all three of the shorts here.
On Glee, Harry Shum Jr. plays one of the club's - and, interestingly enough, the whole school's - few Asian students. Like a number of the characters found in the show and as is often a trait found in television's high school students, he exhibits a comical naivety that nonetheless comes secondary in lieu of main characters like Rachel and Finn.
Back in January, the first meeting of the minds occurred between Wong Fu and the Glee star, and the announcement that one day they would make videos together was a move that brought YouTube fans to Glee and vice versa.
On Wong Fu's YouTube stage, the story largely remains the same - Shum Jr. continues this act in a number of different situations: a buffet, as a would-be hero that witnesses a mugging in progress, and finally during a date. A rather uncanny ability to act like the only one in the room without a clue is primarily to Shum Jr.'s role in these shorts.
I will not spoil what happens in each situation, and a couple million people have already gotten some good laughs from these shorts. If you haven't seen them yourself - or if you just can't get enough of Wong Fu or Harry Shum Jr. - then here are the three videos!
