Teenage DJ urges Madonna to approve his remix in newspaper ad

An enterprising Brazilian DJ has taken out an ad in the Los Angeles Times seeking Madonna's approval of his remix of her Devil Pray tune.

Nick Deboni, 18, placed a classified ad in the Times on Tuesday (11Aug15), asking the pop star to give his version of her new song the thumbs up.


The cheeky teen wrote, "I published this ad to reach you Madonna and ask you, please, to approve my remix" and offered up links to the track on his official Facebook and SoundCloud pages.


His unorthodox attention grab has yet to reach Madonna, but it certainly has her fans interested - more than 135,000 people have checked out the viral image of his ad - and the remix on SoundCloud has had over 60,000 plays.
