Reebok’s Newest Ambassador is an 81-Year-Old Grandpa

Wang Deshun, born 1936, has been named “China’s hottest grandpa” and now, he fronts Reebok’s latest campaign.

Wang Deshun, 81, stars in Reebok’s latest Chinese “Be More Human” campaign alongside actor Wu Lei and actress Yuan Shanshan.

The silver-haired actor, who first made waves in 2015 by walking for Beijing Fashion Week, has been selected by Reebok to front their Chinese campaign.

“Only seriously getting into fitness at the age of 70, Wang’s example has helped reshape China’s views on aging and shown you’re never too old to pursue your goals,” Reebok said, as reported by WWD.
