As we celebrate legendary Foo Fighters frontman and Nirvana drummer Dave Grohl’s 50th birthday on Monday, some very creative Foo Fighters fans in Israel have created a hilarious new video where they have their own birthday party celebrating Grohl’s 50th birthday. The video is part of a campaign to bring Foo Fighters to Israel.
Foo Fighters fans have created videos in the past to try to get the band to come to their cities and countries, with the most famous and successful campaign being the Rockin’ 1000’s viral 2015 video of 1,000 musicians playing “Learn to Fly,” which has 47 million views on YouTube. The video got Foo Fighters to play a show in Cesena, Italy.
You can watch the Israeli Foo Fighters fans’ birthday video for Grohl below, and read the credits as well:
We, the Israeli Foo Fighters community decided to make Dave’s wish come true! Join us to the craziest Foo Mitzvah party ever! ✡?❤
