Joker Pretending to Be Olympic Gold Medalist Is an American Hero
And you thought no Olympian could behave worse than Ryan Lochte.
Kelvin Li sported a faux gold medal and some U.S.-themed sweats while walking through New York City, where he successfully duped scores of people into believing he won an Olympic gold medal at the recently-wrapped Rio Games.
Whether they’re tourists, food cart vendors, policemen or natives, Li masterfully convinces his victims that he brought home gold in badminton. It’s the kind of prank you’d expect to see on Jimmy Kimmel Live! and proof that Americans know absolutely nothing about badminton.
Li seamlessly tells his story of how he won gold and stands in for more selfies than a teenage girl is capable of taking. He’s enjoying his completely undeserved moment in the sun.
Game, set, match — Li. See you in 2020.
