Red Hot Chili Peppers’ Funky Flunkies Clearly In Need Of Raise

Oct 26th, 2006 // 4 Comments

Apparently that Stadium Arcadium money has not yet trickled down to the lower echelons of the Chili Peppers’ staff, as two of the group’s roadies are auctioning off the privilege of placing a custom-made advertisement on the backs of their T-shirts:

Here is the deal if you win the auction:
* You email us a Jpeg or Gif of the advertisiment you would like displayed.
* We will then print the graphic onto two 8-1/2″ x 11″ pieces of paper and
* At the agreed upon show date, the Pepper’s roadies Scott the Lampi and Dave Rat will afix the ad to the back of our shirts for the duration of the Peppers live perfomance, approximately 90 minutes.

So far, they’re at $172.50. We’re not sure if they’re obliged to take whatever ads they get, but we’re hoping the winner opts for “Enough With The Solo Muckity-Muck, Frusciante!” or “Kabbalah? Really?”

    “Yes, of course they’re going to play Under The Bridge. Now shut up, asshole.” would be fun.

  2. Bob Loblaw

    I liked this idea better when it was free, and instead of advertising, it was just Flea telling his daughter to go to bed. Shoe polish + bared chest = Awwwwwwww.
