Alex Olson, The Pack Rat That Doesn’t Like Vans Shoes
Beats, boards, and bullshit.
Straight off of the recent “Cherry” premiere attention, Alex #TeamHandsome Olson opens up to the cameras a bit more via New York City’s Jenkem magazine. The crew spent a day strolling about Brooklyn as Olson revealed the things that he’s into, one of them being his obsession for obscure, random things like a well-designed $2 shower cap package. The other, his love for music, going so far as to reveal a few instrumental skeletons that he’d been working on for kicks.
The candid Olson, though often labelled as an eccentric recluse by some (and really, what great artist isnt?), is pretty entertaining to watch as he also reveals his disdain for bro-ish words like “beast,” riding Anti-Hero boards, and why he resents Vans shoes for threatening to not support his move to New York City. He also jokes around with Jenkem chief, Ian Michna, about who gets more modeling opportunities, Olson or Dylan Reider. Yep, anyone that can be facetious and humorous about their own prestige is a grade-A, stand up bromie to me.
