GRAMMAR QUESTION: why would some people say "doesn't" rather than "don't" when talking about several nouns? Context down below.

I came across the phrase "fame and money DOESN'T change you" and it got me thinking because those are two nouns and I would've said "don't". So my questions are:
1) Is this some kind of regionalism?
2) Is it because they're taking the two nouns as a whole?
3) Do people do this just to add some sort of emphasis?
