How far would you go to hangout with one of your idols? Well, it won’t cost you an arm and a leg, but it may cost $35,000 if Frank Pain has his way.
Rock 108 DJ Frank Pain, from Texas, has started a crowdfunding campaign titled “Help Me Purchase Dave Grohl,” with which he hopes to raise $35,000 US to give to Grohl so they can just hang around for a day.
“I’m his biggest fan and figured I can round up enough scratch to purchase him so we can hang out and high five… Heck, I may give him a bro-hug or two as well,” he wrote.
Pain added: “I’m not 100% the amount I’m asking for will buy him. Hell, I’m not even sure if it’s legal to purchase another human being without being some central part of a 20/20 tv special. But, I figured it wouldn’t hurt to try, right?”
Frank has set a limit of $35,000 US, and has already raised over $1,400 in just 4 days. Crazier things have happened, but if you want to support Frank, check out his GoFundMe page here.
Dave Grohl has yet to comment on the campaign.
UPDATE: Frank has admitted that the whole campaign was a bit of a joke gone too far. He feels a little guilty for the people who have donated, so he will be passing along those donations to Autism Speaks, a charity that supports autism research.
