Dada Life have offered Republican Presidential Candidate, Donald Trump, a position in their fictional world of Dada Land.
With elections rushing closer and closer the music world has grown increasingly outspoken and political. EDM has not been immune to the frenzy, with more DJs and producers expressing their opinions in various ways. Social media has made these opinions readily accessible to the public.
The chaotically talented and comedic Dada Life, real names Stefan Engblom and Olle Corneer, found a more creative and “welcoming” way to publicize their skepticism regarding Trump as president. Instead of outright bashing him, the duo instead decided he’d be better suited as a bureaucrat at the ‘Ministry of Humor’ for the bizzare, and more importantly, non-existant Dada Land. The world is a made-up fantasy land often referenced in their music and art. They sent him a letter offering the position, the text of which you can read below:
It has come to our attention that you will not be winning the race for the office that you seek, but have not yet come to that realization on your own accord. We would like to lend you a helping hand and break the news to you, respectfully, that you are not going to be President of the United States of America.
Being that it seems your schedule will be opening up, we have an offer for you. As Dada Land grows so does our need for government offices and we are pleased to offer you a position at the Dada Land Department of Humor. You have a recognizable inclination for humor albeit misguided. In Dada Land we are willing to overlook your previous transgressions and offer you the ideal environment for you to flourish and explore that talent while not inflicting any real harm. In our opinion, this is a great arrangement for all and it is in our hopes that you would see this advantageous solution in the same light.
There is no need to submit a CV or list of references. We feel confident that your actions up until this point speak for you more effectively than our review and examination of said documents would.
We look forward to your prompt reply.
The Presidents of Dada Land”
No word yet on if Trump will be taking the job.
