Texas Man Sets Up GoFundMe Page to Buy Foo Fighters’ Dave Grohl
Update 12:00pm May 5th: Frank has updated his Facebook page assuring everybody that he won't keep the money for beer. Instead, he will donate the money to one of Dave Grohl's favorite charities, Autism Speaks.
If you only donated to help me meet Dave (or for beer money) and would like to keep your funds, then I have no problem with that. No one will think any less of you.
Watch the video above for a full update.
Original Story: A Texas man has set up a GoFundMe page to buy a piece of rock and roll history - Dave Grohl. That man? My friend and co-worker, Frank Pain.
Frank set up the GoFundMe page titled 'Help Me Purchase Dave Grohl' so they could "hang out and s**t".
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?
For as long as I've known Frank Pain, he's been a Foo Fighters fan and an even bigger Dave Grohl fan. The dude lives and breathes Dave Grohl, even using the catch phrase "Thank Grohl It's Friday" every Friday. And that's just the tip of the iceberg as Pain's Facebook page is loaded with everything Grohl.
To say that he has a bit of a man crush on Grohl might even be an understatement. Yep, I'm saying it...it must be true love.
As of this writing, Pain has raised $245 towards the goal of $35,000 with over 550 shares. If you want to donate, or just laugh your butt off, check out the GoFundMe page here.
