Dillon Francis’ ‘Like and Subscribe’ series is finally coming to fruitionDillon Francis 1

Dillon Francis is moving forward with the launch of his very own show, Like & Subscribe, airing Nov 13, after experiencing some minor setbacks. Francis, who produced and stars in the series, initially set the project for a July 9 kick-off, but according to the Like & Subscribe official Twitter page, the team experienced some “small difficulties,” as their network was shut down indefinitely. Fittingly and quite fortuitously, Funny Or Die picked up the original series last minute, much to Francis fans’ delight.

The series, which follows a cast of parody internet stars or “influencers,” gained media attention in June after a private mural for people with over 20,000 followers on Twitter materialized in West Hollywood. The mural was guarded by a hefty security staff and hidden from public view, a stark promotional troll, especially considering how unremarkable the work turned out to be. Since then, the artists of Melrose Avenue have covered up the street art starting with Twitter’s fiercely sought-after “verified” check mark.

Despite this deafening whoosh soaring over the media’s head, the innermost themes of the show are relevant as ever: the ways in which people interact with fame, artistry, and pervasive online influence––all of which side-split into its superb absurdity.

Kaskade Tries To Troll Eric Prydz And Above & Beyond, But It Didn’t Go As Planned

This post was originally published on this site

Kaskade just pulled a major troll on his fans this afternoon, when he announced that he was going to be in Miami next month for Miami Music Week, and would be throwing a free 12 hour Redux party at the same time as Eric Prydz and Above & Beyond’s show.

As one might expect, we were all a little taken aback by this news… even Prydz himself.

Turns out it was just a simple troll, and Kaskade won’t even be in the state of Florida during MMW, let alone throwing a party there.

So cheers to Kaskade for having a little fun with fans… you jerk. <3

This Daft Punk Rumor Ends With The Internet’s Favorite Troll

This post was originally published on this site

Skrillex might be permanently back with From First To Last, and there’s a steady hum about Swedish House Mafia’s reunion, but one thing is certain: Daft Punk is still not touring. That last rumor you heard isn’t true, as is the one before that, and before that, and so on.

We’re beyond tired of talking about rumors (our emotions have been toyed with enough), but this one is worth mentioning. Yes, it’s fake, but the degree of its fake-ness is a glorious throwback to the internets first and favorite troll. A classic, if you will.

Emo’s Austin has a poster floating around for a Daft Punk Alive 2017 show, and the date is February 2nd, 2017, sandwiched right in betwixt Reel Big Fish and the Dean Ween Group. Of course, you already know it isn’t real, but it’s who’s actually playing that has us tongue in cheek and reluctantly admitting defeat.

The Chainsmokers Add A Sample Of Someone Actually Sh*tting In Their New Track

This post was originally published on this site

The Chainsmokers are known for their crazy antics both in the studio and on stage, but this one might finally top them all. In a recent recording and playback session for a new unreleased song of theirs, Alex Pall slips in a sample of someone actually taking a shit into the mix. The challenge is to see if Drew will notice… he does.

Better yet, Drew decides they’re going to modify the sample and actually put it in the song. You can hear a good portion of the forthcoming track in the snap story – no name for the track has appeared as of yet.

Dillon Francis’ Commentary On The Bachelor Is Priceless [Video]

This post was originally published on this site

Dillon Francis is pretty darned tootin’ producer, and his comedy is almost as good, though we’re not about to get into that argument. Regardless, he’s said some new characters and skits are on the way for 2017, and after trolling David Guetta, he’s now taking aim at The Bachelor.

Pointing out the obvious in an exceptionally loud voice, Dillon just can’t wrap his mind around the show. Curiously, nothing ever gets thrown around the room, but there are no shortage of commentary like, “You might as well get married off of a dating app,” and, “Oh my god this show is a piece of shit, man, I just found out they don’t even get fuckin’ married on this show, they only get engaged.” If you take The Bachelor seriously, it’s probably better not to watch.
