Why Dillon Francis and 12th Planet Re-Created “Ghost”

dillon-12th-ghost

Yesterday, many of us were amused and confused over the clip of Dillon Francis and 12th Planet re-enacting the pottery scene from Ghost. There was a note attached to the YouTube clip that we saw but didn’t understand at the time:

ON JAN 15TH, 2013 A VIDEO WAS PURCHASED AT DILLONFRANCIS.COM BY @RUKES AND @ZEDD

THE PROCEEDS WILL BE DONATED TO TPL.ORG

#DJAWARENESS

We weren’t sure, but we just got news regarding Dillon’s “Awesome Shit” drive, where you can pay for the opportunity for Dillon to do awesome shit. Seriously. Send him $10,000 and Dillon will remix ANY Blink 182 song. $5,000 and he’ll drink a gallon of chocolate milk. Want Dillon’s next single named after you? Send in $3,000. (Note: Rukes and Zedd paid $10,000 for the Ghost video.)

All of the proceeds go to TPL.org, which is pretty awesome. So if you have the funds, or have a bunch of friends pool together some snow shoveling money, you can have Dillon DJ as a clown ($10,000), or do a shot-for-shot remake of Jerry Maguire. DJs giving back: we fucking love it.
