Asian American Commercial Watch: Chase’s “Isaac Hou’s Show Stopping Moves”


This commercial was uploaded by Chase last August 2016 (but now taken down on YouTube), but I only recently first saw it – and was questioning if what I was seeing was real! This commercial is about:

“Cyr Wheel performing artist Isaac Hou spins through multiple gigs and with barely any time in between. After yet another awe-inspiring performance, Isaac receives a check and using Chase’s QuickDeposit he is able to deposit the check right there on the spot while his wheel is still spinning. He rolls out to his next gig not letting something as quick as a check deposit disrupt his flow.”

I’ve never heard or seen Isaac Hou before. Chase does a nice profile and interview of him here:

“Hou grew up in New Jersey with a software engineer father and database manager mother and took time to travel the world by himself after high school. He came across hoop performing by accident and honed his skills on city streets across Europe and Asia. An appearance on “China’s Got Talent” earned him worldwide fame.”

According to this 2014 article, Hou is of Taiwanese decent and lives in Taipei. You can see an almost four minute YouTube video of him performing here:

Just amazing and mesmerizing!
