At one point in the video, the budding salesman even breaks into song! According to China Press, the song is called "We're Different".

Cambodia's Red Cross Society has since provided Thaksin, his brother, and mother with food supplies and some monetary donations, according to K01 News.

Additionally, a Beijing-based TV station has given Thaksin and his family an all-expenses paid trip to China so that he can attend an audition and, if successful, he will be signed on to a singing contract.
