Count on Foo Fighters to become satirical. The rock act has just premiered a hilarious music video for their new album's second single, 'Long Road to Ruin', parodying General Hospital scenes where frontman Dave Grohl became the 'starlicious' doctor.
The soap opera-like video was directed by Jesse Peretz who have also directed the band in their previous comedic clips. Peretz directed 'Learn to Fly' that parodied the movie 'Airplane!' with Grohl slipping in the role of a flight attendant. He also penned 'Big Me', a parody of Mentos commercial that eventually led the band being thrown Mentos pieces whenever they played the song live.
The clip also features a guest starring role from The Office's Rashida Jones. She becomes the secret love affair of Grohl's character.
'Long Road to Ruin' is the following single of 'The Pretenders' that also appears in the band's September-released album 'Echoes, Silence, Patience and Grace'.
