Dave Grohl Opens Up About Caffeine Addiction In Hilarious Spoof Ad

Dave Grohl Opens Up About Caffeine Addiction In Hilarious Spoof Ad

Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl has opened up about his battle with addiction in a new ad campaign.

However, while rockstars might stereotypically be addicted to illicit drugs or alcohol, for Grohl, it is caffeine that has disrupted his wellbeing, according to the parody ad.

“Ten years ago, I was in the grips of a debilitating caffeine addiction. My ability to maintain personal relationships and bowel movements were compromised by crippling sleep deprivation and noxious coffee breath,” Grohl says in the voiceover.

“As the bean took over, I found myself doing anything for a fix. My roast grew darker and darker until I finally hit pot bottom. I couldn’t be there for the ones I love when they needed me the most.”

The fake ad recommends caffeine addicts, like Grohl, try ‘Freshpotix’.

Like other medical ads in the United States, the ad warns of potential side effects that can arise from taking the drugs.

For Freshpotix, the list is: “but not limited to: Severe Monkey Peen, Violent Fits of Rage Towars Left-Handed People, Extra Toe, Urge to Found Your Own Colony, Bald Ass, Cyrusvirus (your voice changes to that of Billy Ray or Miley), Stomach Tail, Peptic Waltzing, Stool Entirely Made of Corn (Just a Cob), Oxford Commas, Weeping Taint, Echola, Nose Chickens, Uncontrollable Tattling, Back Fro, Plaid Lung, Acid Washed Jeans, Tinselscrote (Break out of Christmas Tree Tinsel on Balls), and Pauly Shore.”
