Red Hot Chili Peppers Drummer Chad Smith Trolls Ohio State Fans In Columbus


Ohio State loves their football team. That’s not news, of course, but it might provide some context to those who stumbled upon this video because they are primarily Chad Smith fans. To be clear, he isn’t being booed because of his performance, but ratherĀ what he is performing.

During as how in Columbus, Ohio, the Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer performed “The Victors” in front of the suddenly hostile crowd.

“The Victors” happens to be the fight song of despised rival Michigan.

Smith isn’t from Michigan, but is a known Michigan sports fan. Given that he is a Wolverine, it’s no surprise that he takes every opportunity to stick it to the fans in Columbus. Now that the rivalry is as intense and heated as ever, we might see the Chili Peppers schedule more shows in Columbus just to give him this opportunity.

The Buckeyes and Wolverines are expected to be compete for the Big Ten title this season, and ultimately the College Football Playoff. We know what side Chad Smith will be rooting for.

Michael is originally from Miami, FL and is of Cuban descent. He holds BFA from the University of Florida/New World School of the Arts and is also a New York city based stand-up comedian. Michael is 5'11", but wears elevators in his shoes to make himself 6 feet tall. Twitter: @MichaelNapoles
