Fool us once and no nookie for you.
The “organizers” of last year’s 4/20 Limp Bizkit “concert” at the Wayne Avenue Sunoco say the band is coming to town and this time the tricksters say the band is coming for reals.
Like last year we were like 😂.
FAKE CONCERT NEWS!
A manager at the Sunoco at 912 Wayne Ave. said that the concert is NOT (we repeat NOT) happening.
Last year’s “show” caused the business nothing, but grief.
A message was left for a Dayton police spokeswoman seeking comment.
This 2017 Facebook page for the event is pretty confident, though.
“Limp Bizkit, the realest band around, playing at the realest gas station around, Sunoco on Wayne Ave on 4/20, 2017. Don't let the haterz (AKA Dayton Police, CNN Chile, B Man from WTUE, etc) tell you that they not coming 2 Dayton!!! Itz gon' be the night of your life for you and ur baby mama. Bring the kids 2. Charge up your vapes and sew up the rips in your favorite JNCOs fam cuz itz gonna be JUST ONE OF THEM DAYZ!! Slim Jims are gonna be buy one get one free all night too.”
Maybe we are wrong and there will be plenty of nookie for all of Dayton.
(We aren’t wrong. THE SHOW IS NOT HAPPENING.)
While many people were like 😹 over the joke, others were like 😞 😒.
Neither Dayton police, Sunco nor the band behind such hits as “Nookie,” Break Stuff,” “Rollin” and “Hot Dog” were amused by the nonsense last year.
That didn’t stop “the show.”
“Concert” T-shirts were made and several scores of people showed up for the 2016 “Limp Bizkit show.
This woman wore a bear head.
Police surrounded the gas station.
The Sunoco closed and turned off its lights in a somewhat failed attempt to disperse the crowd, which consisted pretty much of just people standing around, taking pictures and laughing about talking about the spectacle.
At one point, people shouted, “We want Fred!” in reference to Fred Durst, former vocalist of the “nu metal” band that was formed in 1994.
The prank received national attention from Gawker, VICE, The Daily Beast and others.
