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.

Nickelback frontman, Chad Kroeger told MTV that it was the guys from Funny or Die who came up with the idea for the video saying:

They called us up. They said, ‘This whole debacle that’s going on in Detroit it just lunacy.
