As evidenced by their current US tour, the Foo Fighters love bringing guests onstage. During their set at the Azura Amphitheater in Kansas City last month, Dave Grohl invited a fan named Lauren, who proceeded to perform Monkey Wrench with the band using the frontman's trademark ‘DG-335’ Gibson Trini Lopez.
More recently, the group brought Grohl's once-arch-nemesis/now-collaborator, 11-year-old Nandi Bushell to play drums on Everlong with them at their August 26 show at the LA forum.
And during their set at Dreamforce 2021 – an event hosted for the employees and customers of software company Salesforce – the band were joined by some new guests: a troupe of dancing mascots donning rather fluffy and adorable getups.
The mascots' integration into the Seattle rockers' live act is seamless; Grohl headbangs in sync with the characters around him, while bassist Nate Mendel copying the movements of a mascot resembling Albert Einstein.
Halfway through the video above, on account of the bizarreness of the situation, Dave Grohl breaks his composure, cracking up laughing in the middle of a vocal line. “Just when I thought life couldn't get any fucking weirder,” the frontman comments.
The band's set at Dreamforce consisted of 11 songs in total, including a mix of originals and Rolling Stones, Queen and Bee Gees covers.
The Foo Fighters have previous experience covering Bee Gees tracks. Last month, the band – under the guise of their disco alter ego the Dee Gees – trolled the Westboro Baptist Church with a drive-by rendition of 1976's You Should Be Dancing.
