From skateboarding to the Smell to Laotion pop star: the videos of Jonny Olsen

In this week's print version, we're profiling one Jonny Olsen, who moved from Los Angeles to Laos five years ago and has since become a pop star. They call him Mawlummawkhaenfalang, which means "white dude who can play a mean khaen." The khaen, as you will see in the videos below, is like a pan flute, and Olsen can shred on it. And, like Prince and James Brown before him, he can also dance and sing.

I like this one because of the Lil Jon quote.

This one's called "I Love Lao Ladies" and is the quiet storm number of the bunch.
