Nickelback is Not Amused by Canadian Cops’ Drunk Driver Punishment Prank

screen-shot-2016-11-30-at-1-53-05-pmIt seems that Nickelback has become tired of being a punchline, that band everyone loves to hate. Earlier this week, Canadian Cops announced they were going to punish drunk drivers by making them listen to a Nickelback album while on the way to the police station, saying, “we figure if you are foolish enough to get behind the wheel after drinking then a little Chad Kroeger and the boys is the perfect gift for you.” Lots of people laughed. Not Nickelback.

According to TMZ, a rep for the band contacted the Kensington Police Department and demanded that they take down the post which had already gone viral. They obliged and said they never meant to embarrass the band. Hopefully, the prospect of fines and suspended licenses will be enough to keep intoxicated people off the roads.
