What exactly is a Fathead? The Web site for the company explains:
Fathead wall graphics are life-size action images that you stick on any smooth surface. You can move them and reuse them and they are safe for walls. Fathead wall graphics are way better than a poster, much bigger than a sticker and tougher than a decal, according to the Fathead.com description. A fathead can transform an entire room in a fraction of the time, and cost of painting or wallpapering.
The graphic is destined to be extremely popular, as Jeremy Lin has exploded onto the basketball scene, scoring more points in his first four NBA starts than Kobe, Lebron or Jordan did.
Lin, a 6'3, 200-pound point guard has taken the sport by storm, overshadowing his All-Star teammates Carmelo Anthony and Amare' Stoudamire by leading the team to its best streak all year without their help.
Jeremy Lin, who hails from Palo Alto, Calif., was a star in college, when he led Harvard University to its all-time best basketball season in 2009 before graduating and going un-drafted in 2010. He proved himself in the NBA summer league, dominating John Wall in one particularly impressive game, and was then signed by the Golden State Warriors.
And now, he is unexpectedly the hottest player in the NBA, and as only the fourth Asian-American ever to play in the league, he has emerged as an icon in that community as well. And Knicks head coach Mike D'Antoni only expects him to continue to do well:
He just does everything easy and the rest of the guys around him are playing the way we want to play,D'Antoni told CBS News last week, adding the following about Lin: The things that are real are his vision, which won't change; his speed, which won't change; his knowledge of the game, which won't change. I think it can only get better.
