Diplo pretended to place Dillon Francis’ telephone quantity on a billboard.
The Chainsmokers and Illenium leveraged a platform referred to as Neighborhood to produce buzz about the release of their collaboration, “Takeaway,” back in July. Diplo and Dillon Francis have followed suit, but in the a lot more tongue-in-cheek manner you may anticipate from the two DJ/producers.
A telephone quantity purportedly belonging to Francis lately appeared on a Hollywood billboard apparently rented out by Diplo (true name Thomas Wesley Pentz Jr.). Francis himself encouraged fans to text the quantity, and when they do they are added to a get in touch with list through Neighborhood.
In contrast to the aforementioned promotion by Illenium and The Chainsmokers, on the other hand, Pentz and Francis’ stunt does not right away funnel customers to an person announcement. Whether or not it precedes a collaboration or other sort of announcement from the two artists remains to be observed.
Francis has been a effectively-identified class clown of the EDM scene all through his profession, and Pentz’ himself has a penchant for abrasive behavior. In a lot more current memory, the two performed a back-to-back set at the 2018 edition of HARD Summer in Fontana, California.
Fans of Dillon Francis can connect with him themselves via Community by texting (310) 620-6560.
