(PCM) You almost have to feel bad for vocalist Chad Kroger and the boys in Nickelback. They are constantly getting ridiculed and no one seems to understand their overall popularity. It now seems that police on Canada’s Prince Edward Island have discovered a new way to punish drunk drivers in addition to fines, license suspension and criminal charges. They will also force individuals who are busted for drunk driving to endure listening to the police departments in-house Nickelback CD collection.
Oh, the horror, but really actually pretty funny! The police department made a post via Facebook that said that anyone who was “dumb enough to feel they could drink and drive” would also be forced to listen to endless Nickelback while they are contained in police custody. The department went on to say “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.” You can view the Facebook posting below:
Definitely a creative solution to battle the on-going problem of drunk driving, especially around the holiday season. Although others may feel that having to endure endless Nickelback songs may literally “drive” someone to drink even more! Sorry, Nickelback, at least it’s for a good cause!
