ASKED QUESTIONS

Is this website a joke?

Is this website a joke?

Of course it is! At first glance. But the work is real. Real good. So pour yourself a drink, have a look around, and enjoy the finer things in life…great design and storytelling!

+

So Dan Michaels is real then?

-

So Dan Michaels is real then?

Absolutely! I mean granted it's just my middle name with an 'S' tacked on to the end, and the photo is from Halloween, but the man is real dammit! Dan Michaels is a way of living, a lifestyle, a brand.

+

Wow. By all means tell me more.

-

Wow. By all means tell me more.

The Dan Michaels brand came to life in 1985, after a two-day island bender with yacht-rock gods Daryl Hall and John Oates. The duo was in desperate need of a hair product that could withstand the Caribbean humidity and evening cool-breeze. Dan Michaels, having perfected his hair years ago, knew just what they needed. The product was an instant hit among the yacht-rock community. Branded Dan Michaels True Professional, the hair-product line soon propelled Dan Michaels beyond his wildest dreams. But with great fortune and fame came increased scrutiny. In an attempt to divert some of the attention away from his lifestyle, he focused his public efforts toward philanthropy.

What sort of philanthropic work is Dan Michaels involved in exactly?

What sort of philanthropic work is Dan Michaels involved in exactly?

In 1992, Dan Michaels created Pennies for Africa, a charity alliance of U.S.-based nonprofits and their African partners working to help children, families, and communities throughout the Sub-Saharan region. By setting up collection containers in grocery and convenient stores across the nation, Dan Michaels raised $47 Million, mainly in dime, quarter and small bill denominatons. The nickels and pennies were laundered through a series of small-town animal shelters, before being deposited straight into his Swiss bank account.

+

And that's legal?

-

And that's legal?

Legal? No, of course not. Nor did Dan Michaels get away with it either. Not unless you consider 18-month house-arrest in his Virgin Island cabana a vacation. Dan Michaels assures you it was anything but.

+

Huh. In all seriousness, I'm speechless.

-

Huh. In all seriousness, I'm speechless.

You and me both brotha' (or sista'), you and me both.

That aside, Dan Michaels sounds like the man for me. How do I sign up?
