Shaun White‘s role in the band “Bad Things” isn’t his only foray into music.

The two-time Olympic halfpipe champion is part of a recently released Thirty Seconds to Mars short film for the song “City of Angels.”

The video leads off with Kanye West and also includes NBA star Steve Nash (a 2000 Olympian for Canada), Lindsay Lohan (who also made Olympic sports news this year) and Selena Gomez, among others.

The band has a history with the Olympics, too.

Earlier this year, it released a short film for another single, “Up in the Air,” that included Fierce Five members Jordyn Wieber and McKayla Maroney.

Also, don’t forget that lead singer Jared Leto played Steve Prefontaine in the 1997 biopic “Prefontaine.”

Here are White’s two speaking clips from the video:

As expected the U.S. took gold in both men’s and women’s basketball, with the men winning their third consecutive Olympic gold medal and the women running their streak to six straight. But there was a lot more to take in at the basketball venues, including Serbia’s men’s team winning their first Olympic basketball medal (as an independent nation), and Spain doing the same in the women’s bracket.
