First World Problem of the Day: Just when you thought things couldn’t possibly get worse for the Motor City, it was confirmed today that Nickelback will indeed perform during halftime at the Lions-Green Bay game on Thanksgiving Day.
This, despite a petition with over 50,000 signatories asking the halftime show’s producers to reconsider for the sake of Detroit’s national image. “Does anyone even like Nickelback?,” asks the petiton’s author, Dennis Guttman. ”Is this some sort of ploy to get people to leave their seats during halftime to spend money on alcoholic beverages and concessions?”
The band’s frontman Chad Kroeger, who has likely spent a lifetime letting such comments roll off his luxurious golden locks, said they were looking forward to the performance and “always love playing in Detroit.”
Controversial Ad Campaign of the Day: PETA is stirring up controversy (so what else is new, amirite?) with a new veganism campaign that pokes fun at the victim of recent shark attack.
21-year-old CJ Wickersham took a serious shark bite to his left thigh while spearfishing off Anna Maria Island. PETA’s response: “Payback is hell.”
“It may be an unusual way to get the message across,” PETA rep. Ashely Byrne said, “but I think it will cause people to be more sensitive towards fish.” Byrne added that PETA is glad Wickersham “is going to be alright,” but hopes his injury will cause anglers “to rethink fishing.”
At least one community is refusing to display what one fisherman called “PETA’s typical propaganda” — Anna Maria Island. “We have no billboards in the city, and we do not allow advertising on our trolley benches,” said Mayor Michael Selby.
