Leave it to Funny or Die to take the edge off of a touchy situation.

In this video comedian Paul Sheer acts as a record exec who is trying to find out why Detroit hates Nickelback, and is trying to find a way to turn them into something Detroit will love. For instance he decides that instead of being Nickelback, they should be Detroit's "great four", Tom Selleck, Alice Cooper, RoboCop and the legendary Dave Coulier (Uncle Joey from Full House).

Whether you like Nickelback or not, you've gotta give them credit for being good sports, and being able to laugh at themselves.
