Daniel Johns acknowledges that GQ used his font for its Robert Pattinson coverage


The singer of Silverchair Daniel John account QG hacked the police from his podcast and all he wants in compensation is two tickets to The Batman movie. We love a king with priorities.

If you’re slightly confused by this turn of events, let’s rewind. Earlier this week, GQ did a very fun photo shoot with Robert Pattinsonwho will play the role of Mr. Bruce Wayne himself in The Batman.

It’s a fun photo shoot: Pattinson is wearing fun neon lights and glasses, we love to see him.

But Johns pointed out that the font used on the cover of GQ is really similar to the font on the cover of his Spotify podcast. Who is Daniel Johns?

For context, Johns also designed the podcast font himself. A very cool skill if you ask me.

You can compare the two by scrolling through Johns’ Instagram post.

Johns posted a few Insta stories about the sitch where he also pointed out that he was GQ Australia‘s musician of the year a short time ago.

“In 2015 I was named @GQAUSTRALIA Musician of the Year…Your new cover shoot with Rob feels eerily familiar,” he wrote, according to The Brag.

But instead of any potential credit or recognition, what John wants in penance is two free tickets to see The Batman. A reasonable request if you ask me.

“I don’t expect credit. I don’t expect to be recognized. Damn expecting free tickets to the new Batman,” he wrote.

Now he has launched a noble campaign under the hashtag #2tix4dan and added a few more items to his list of demands.

“Two GA tickets to the new Batman movie for me and my dad (don’t even have to be Gold Class),” he wrote on Insta. Don’t underestimate yourself Dan, ask for the Gold Class.

The second request was for two medium popcorn and Diet Coke combos. An excellent choice.

His last request was a guaranteed minimum rating of 3 stars in either QG Where GQ Australia for his next album FutureNever less than a month after its release.

FutureNever is due out in April and it will be his first solo album since 2015.

Personally, I can’t wait to read Johns’ inevitable review of The Batman.
