Very short musical starring Jeremy Lin is also very odd

A short film appeared on YouTube today called, “Jeremy Lin Goes Hollywood.” It is only about six minutes long, but it has two musical numbers, neither of which is about Hollywood. It’s hard to say what they are about.

Well, the first number has a clear message of “Cheer up, Jeremy,” and it has to do with being bummed out about getting “mean tweets.” It’s just hard to say why any of this is happening.

The second number is about … I’m really not sure on that one.

It is clear that a fair amount of effort went into this film. It co-stars three young men who are in the entertainment business, including Harry Shum Jr. of “Glee” fame, so there is a Hollywood tie in that sense. And, of course, Lin was recently traded to the Lakers. Except that the YouTube page refers to that trade and makes a point of telling us, “We filmed this shortly after the season was over,” presumably meaning that this was all done while Lin was still a Houston Rocket.

Anyway, here it is. Maybe someone can help me out in the comments section?
