You may have heard the news that a group of Detroit Lions fans had started an online petition to remove Nickelback from the bill of their half-time show.
The petition read:
"This game is nationally televised, do we really want the rest of the US to associate Detroit with Nickelback? Detroit is home to so many great musicians and they chose Nickelback?!?!?! Does anyone even like Nickelback? Is this some sort of ploy to get people to leave their seats during halftime to spend money on alcoholic beverages and concessions? This is completely unfair to those of us who purchased tickets to the game. At least the people watching at home can mute their TVs. The Lions ought to think about their fans before choosing such an awful band to play at halftime."
Well Nickelback responded with something very unexpected... comedy! The band have at least shown that they can see the funny side to the whole debacle, and obviously aren't upset by the seemingly growing number of people who seem to take offense at their music.
Chad and co made a video with FunnyOrDie.com, which shows them at a meeting with their record company, discussing ideas to overcome the problem. You can check it out via this link.
