Slayer fan Jake, who last week aimed to sell his car so he could afford tour tickets, has thanked the band after they stepped in.
He released a spoof video advertising his 1997 Ford Escort, saying: “Tickets aren’t cheap. I know there are those who say I can’t go there. Yes, I can… I just have to sell this car.” Frontman Tom Araya then appeared in a response clip, where he said: “The car’s a piece of shit! Tell you what – we’ll give you the tickets.”
Jake has now uploaded a third instalment. It shows him dropping a single tear as he watches Araya’s video, then throwing away his ‘for sale’ sign. He says: “Well, that rocks. Thanks Slayer!”
Meanwhile, in a separate video, Slayer have revealed details of a track called When The Stillness Comes. It’s to be released via Scion as part of their tie-in with the car marque, which includes a band-branded version of their vehicle. Araya and co are currently recording their 11th studio album.
