Asian Dude Sings The National Anthem

LAist relies on your reader support.
Your tax-deductible gift today powers our reporters and keeps us independent. We rely on you, our reader, not paywalls to stay funded because we believe important news and information should be freely accessible to all.

Every morning at 6am we show a video of someone singing or playing the National Anthem. Unless we're drunk.

Last night we were challenged to find a video of someone half way across the world to sing our nations anthem. Why? Because it would probably upset those who are highly sensitive and overly anal about the going ons of a web blog.

Also because pretty much every new change that we've made to this blog over the last seven months has only made it more popular. So for the rest of the month, now that we think of it, how about all of the Star Spangled Banner vids be sung by people who neither live in LA nor are singing it in LA?

Great. Done.
