Drummer (and Michigan native) Chad Smith decided to troll fans by putting ‘Michigan’ on his drum set. Michigan and Ohio State’s football teams, the Wolverines and Buckeyes, have one of sports’ most legendary rivalries. Anthony Kiedis made light of Smith’s expert trolling when talking to fans between songs.

“It’s like a furry little cuddly animal that comes into your territory. You get to snuggle with a Wolverine tonight.”

After some boos, Kiedis quipped, “No no, it’s like a pet, furry, cuddly, all up in your [stuff], that’s what Chad is. He’s like one of those pillows you get to hump, a wolverine pillow that you can hump tonight, with your Buckeye ass.”

The band also debuted their new single “Dark Necessities” live. Watch video of the trolling and “Dark Necessities” below!
