The Foo Fighters are no strangers to paying homage to classic horror films. Their music video for “Everlong” which was directed by Michel Gondry and nominated for Best Music Video at the 1998 MTV Video Music Awards, is, in part, a parody of the film The Evil Dead. Now, decades later, they’ve found a new way to once again parody a classic horror film – this time Brian De Palma’s Carrie in Dave Grohl’s ice bucket challenge.
Challenged by the Zac Brown Band, the Foo Fighters decided to spice things up by recreating the iconic prom scene from De Palma’s classic. In replacing Sissy Spacek with Grohl, and the pigs blood with ice-cold water, the FooFighter’s have elevated the simple act of dumping cold water on one’s head, into something quite memorable. Watch the video below. Enjoy!
