Christmas is coming, the goose is going ham on Ben & Jerry’s and edibles, and the Don Shop is in a state of mostly digital transience, as we move from the UK-based Little Shop of Awesome in Don Studios V to a California based future and Don Studios VI. Physical merch, CDs, shirts, etc, will be unavailable to purchase until next year. You CAN get some lovely hand-drawn Don goodness, but other than that, your options for making the Don-Fan in your life the happiest creature on Terra are limited.
Or they WERE.
Get ready to be ecstatic, Don Fam! For a limited time, you can purchase PERSONALISED, CUSTOM, BESPOKE SONGS for your loved ones this Holiday Season!
You read correctly. You did not imagine that. This month only, I will make you an original song, about whatever/whoever you like, based around whatever sample/beat you like. For $250. For an additional $50 I will make you a sleeve. And for $500 I will shoot a video for the thing too. Nothing fancy. Might run around Hollywood boulevard with an iPhone or something. But it will be me. The Don. Singing you or your loved one their very own song, just in time for Christmas.
Imagine! You want a Don Song about how great your nan is? Done. You want a Don Song about 80s Saturday Morning cartoon sensation Ulysses sampling the theme from 80s Saturday Morning Cartoon Sensation Ulysses? Done! You want a Don Song about you crushing all your enemies over the beat from The Fresh Princes’ Summertime? You got it! You are limited only by your imagination and my control of the English language!
INSTRUCTIONS: Make your order, then send us a message (atd at akirathedon dot com) stating your subject matter, any keywords you want included, and the beat or sample you want used for the music. If you’re getting art as well, include any images you’d like used.
SMALLPRINT: The music will be sent to you as an MP3 and lossless digital file for futureproofed glory. The video will be sent as a .Mov, unless otherwsie requested. Please allow 2 weeks for delivery, if there’s some kind of super urgency get in touch and we’ll see what we can do about expediting the process.
While this is your very own song made for you or your loved one, that doesn’t mean you can sell it to Zack Snyder to use in a Superman movie or put it on iTunes or use it in your advert or whatever. That sort of thing costs many many many grands. This is so that you the real-life Don fan can have a super special present to enjoy for all times and cry over with your grandchitlins. Don retains copyright and the right to put it on one of his records or sell it to Zack Snyder to use in a Superman movie although obviously he’d never do that as Zack Snyder is evil. Amen.
