Like all fan raised campaigns, the more you pay the better the perk, with the most expensive item on offer giving a fan the chance to appear in one of their music video’s. Not just as an extra either, you and a friend of your choosing will be incorporated into an integral part of the video’s storyline. You just need to get yourself to Cleveland, Ohio for the shoot. The band are graciously offering to pay the winning bidders accommodation however. So far 1 fan has claimed this perk, worth $2000 USD, out of the 3 on offer.
