Rick Grohl’d: Watch Foo Fighters troll the Westboro Baptist Church with a truckload of Rick Astley
The Foo Fighters have been busy this summer bringing the awesome to each and every stage along their ongoing North American tour. Last night before their show in Kansas City, Missouri, Dave Grohl and company had some fun before rocking out by mocking the Westboro Baptist Church. Again.
According to Buzzfeed, the religious nutbag group was protesting the Foo’s show outside the Sprint Center, so Grohl and the band loaded up onto the bed of a pickup truck and rolled by blasting Rick Astley’s “Never Gonna Give You Up.”
Nevermind the Rick Roll. Now we have the “Rick Grohl.”
The band held up signs that read “Keep It Clean” and “You got Rick Roll’d (again)” as fans quickly crowded around them. The truck parked itself right in front of the protesters and judging from the video below, it looks like a good time was had by all.
The “again” in the Foo Fighters’ sign presumably refers to the time back in 2011 when they pretended to be a country band and played some tunes in front of the Westboro folk, an incident that also took place in Kansas City.
Amazing stuff. Watch the video below…
