Big Boss Robot Cap on Mr Daniel Wu

Daniel Wu Yan-Zu is all over paparazzi news because of the Big Boss Robot Cap. We admit, we don’t understand what’s being said, but we think it’s all about the great cap he’s wearing. We still have these here. There’s also a video. Although he just had a new baby, we’re honored that the cap is much more important. link

That “BB” must be “Big Boss”.

“What a great looking cap! Daniel’s aight too”

Seriously, congrats, DW.
