SURPRISE!

A flasher started getting intimate with himself on a Boston Subway earlier on this month.

So, it created a fan page for itself and asked the question “Can a pickle get more fans than Nickleback?“. It was the 3rd of February and only 16 days later the pickle’s dream was achieved and Chad Kroeger was pissed as hell! The frontman of the Canadian Rock Band, Nickelback. was infuriated and sent this to the page creator:

Is that really Chad?

Is that really Chad?

Safe to say, the page still exists and has almost 1.58 million fans (Nickelback Fanpage has 1.48) and has spawned others like the “Can this pickle get more fans than Twilight“, and I’m honestly cheering for that one!
