MEGADETH’s DAVE MUSTAINE Jacks Up Price Of CAMEO Videos By $100

Dave Mustaine has increased the cost of a video message on Cameo.

MEGADETH frontman Dave Mustaine must have done extremely well right out of the gate with Cameo, as the guitarist has hiked up the price of his appearances on the video messaging site.

It appears now that if you want a personal video from the MEGADETH mainman, it’s going to cost you $250 instead of the initial $150 price tag.

In a short video message announcing his partnership with Cameo, Mustaine said: “Hey, I’m Dave Mustaine and I’d like to invite you to have me send a personalized greeting from Cameo for you to your friends. I can say ‘Happy birthday,’ ‘Happy anniversary,’ ‘Merry Christmas,’ ‘Happy Hanukkah’ — whatever. Or my personal favorite is, like, ‘F—.’ No, we won’t get into that here. But I will tell you that if you do have me do a Cameo for you, a portion of the proceeds will go to charities that I support.”

Cameo is the creation of Chicago-based founder Steven Galanis and has been around since 2017. The site reportedly features more than 40,000 celebrities, who for fees from $1 to $2,500, will offer video messages that mention another person by name. In 2020 alone, the company fulfilled more Cameos than throughout its four-year history, with Cameos delivered on every continent in the world and it raised over $1 million for worthy nonprofits and causes through its Cameo Cares program.
