Why Dillon Francis Will Never Name His Future Children After Taco Bell Menu Items

Despite anything you might've read online, Dillon Francis does not own a Taco Bell. That was just a clever April Fool's prank. That said, the infamous dance-music producer seems to spend enough time patronizing the fast food chain and professing his love for its various menu items that one could easily make that assumption.

As we mentioned in this week's music feature on Francis and the Mad Decent Block Party, which makes its Valley debut later tonight, the 26-year-old is a man of many passions. And just off the tops of our heads, that includes, but is by no means limited to, his aforementioned love of Taco Bell, as well as a big thing for cats, Internet weirdness, and absurd humor.
