Foo Fighters ‘Rick Roll’ Westboro Baptist Protesters [VIDEO]
There are many ways to react when Westboro Baptist makes an appearance. Some form human walls to block the protests. Others get even more creative. That's just what Dave Grohl and the Foo Fighters did at a recent concert.
It seems WBC has a problem with the Foo Fighters and decided to protest their concert in Kansas City on August 21st. Before the show, Dave and the gang hopped in the back of a pickup truck holding signs including 'You Got Rick Rolld' while blasting 'Never Gonna Give You Up' by Rick Astley. This isn't the first time the Foo Fighters have Rick Rolled WBC. Back in 2011, they got on the back of a flat-bed truck and sang some country songs with altered lyrics.
In a statement from 2011, Dave Grohl said
God bless America! It takes all kinds. I don't care if you're black or white or purple or green, whether you're Pennsylvanian or Transylvanian, Lady Gaga or Lady Antebellum, men loving women and women loving men and men loving men and women loving women -- you all know we like to watch that. But what I'd like to say is, God bless America, y'all!
One YouTube commenter modified the prank saying
Rick Grohl'd...that's kinda awesome.
