Hundreds of fans gathered at Di Tan Basketball Park in Beijing, China for the launch of Dwight Howard‘s five-city promotional tour. But before participating in basketball clinics, drills and games, Dwight greeted the audience with a Peking opera mask, and began the day by planking with 100 fans on a larger-than-life version of his all-new “dh” logo–to be featured on his new adiPower Howard shoe, launching on November 1. Check out the crazy pictures courtesy of our friends at adidas.

Dwight’s international adventure began last week when he posterized a giraffe at a local mall in Japan, and his adidas China tour will continue over the weekend with stops in Changchun, Wuhan and Nanjing.
