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
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.
