Foo Fighters Fan Will Pay $35,000 to ‘Purchase’ Dave Grohl
"Heck, I may give him a bro-hug or two as well," says Rock 108 radio host Frank Pain
They say money can’t buy happiness, but that’s apparently not true of Rock 108 radio host Frank Pain. According to the BBC, Pain has started a GoFundMe page to raise $35,000 in the hopes of getting to “hang out [with] and high five” Foo Fighters lead singer Dave Grohl.
“I’m his biggest fan and figured I can round up enough scratch to purchase him so we can hang out and high five and s**t,” he writes. “Heck, I may give him a bro-hug or two as well.”
At the time of publishing, Pain has only raised $443, so it does not look like he’s anywhere close to “purchasing” his favorite rock star. And even if he does by some miracle collect $35,000, Pain doesn’t specify how he’ll actually go about contacting Grohl and arranging a time and date for said “bro-hug.” Nor does he seem to be worried about whether or not Grohl would be a willing participant.
But that’s okay — Pain appears to have this part somewhat figured out. “I’m not 100% the amount I’m asking for will buy him,” he acknowledges. “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?”
