Legendary hip hop group Public Enemy performed on The Late Show With Jimmy Fallon Wednesday night, and one member of the group had on a familiar jersey.
Flavor Flav, Public Enemy hype man who’s also famous these days for his reality show “Flavor of Love,” wore a No. 6 Brooklyn Nets jersey during the performance. 6 belongs to Nets sixth man Alan Anderson, who’s a good floor spacer but not exactly a hot-seller on the jersey market: it’s not even listed as an available jersey in the Nets store.
My guess is that Flav got the jersey custom-made, and the back has his name on it. But call it Schrödinger’s jersey: since he didn’t show his back to the camera during the performance, it might as well be an Alan Anderson jersey. And that’s got to make Alan Anderson a happy man. UPDATE: As eagle-eyed contributor Andrew Gnerre points out, Flav also wore the same jersey during Public Enemy’s Brooklyn Bowl performance. Turn this video (courtesy of BrooklynVegan) to around 3:40 to watch Flav walk around.
You can catch bits of the “Anderson” on the back of his jersey. Weirdest celebrity jersey ever? I think so.
