One of the most hated bands in the world at the moment, Nickelback, have posted a response video to the petition signed by 75,000 fans in a bid to get them pulled off the bill for the The Detroit Lions annual Thanksgiving Day game in the US.
They called us up. They said, ‘This whole debacle that’s going on in Detroit it just lunacy. We here in the comedy field think it’s just perfect for making fun of, and if you guys would like to come down here … We’re huge fans of Funny or Die and anything Will Ferrell is associated with — we’re there. So we’re like, ‘Absolutely, we’d love to come and make fun of the whole thing and ourselves at the same time.’
