Put My Beer In A Nickelback Video? No Thanks.

Friday, June 29th, 2012 by Collin Wittman

Look, here’s the thing. People are too quick to make sweeping comments about someone else’s character based solely on superficial things.

"Oh, wait, you don’t like ‘Game of Thrones’? Are your parents brother and sister or just cousins?"

"How can you say that ‘Sister Act’ didn’t cement Whoopi’s place as a smoldering sex symbol for a new generation? No one will ever love you and you’ll die alone."

"I can’t believe you like mushrooms on your pizza. If I had black market connections, I’d frame you for a crime that guarantees you’d spend the rest of your life in a particularly grim prison."

Everyone needs to chill out. Let’s all just realize that our society is comprised of different people with different interests and it’s these differences that create the rich tapestry that is the brotherhood of man. Turn to your neighbor, give him a hug, and go grab a beer. You’ll be happier for it.

All that being said, if you like Nickelback, you’re dumber than shit.

Seriously, forget about what’s on Joey’s head, the bigger question is what the hell is going on in yours? You must have a weakness for cloying, barely sensical lyrics or generic, uninspired guitar riffs. Or maybe you just like beards and awful haircuts. Regardless, Nickelback is synonymous with everything that’s lame. Just ask the good folks at Dark Horse Brewery…

In what is technically old news [source:] (it happened two years ago, but just started blowing up now), Dark Horse took a stand against the crap-rock stylings of Chad Kroeger and his buddies. Apparently, the band had contacted the brewery with a proposal to feature its beer in a music video. After careful deliberation, head brewer Aaron Morse said something to the effect of, "I know that this is going to cost me money, but I’d rather turn into an unloved, one-eyed cat named Nathan than have my beer show up in a Nickelback video."

Thank you Mr. Morse for your unwavering courage in standing up for our ears. You’re a true American hero.
