Nickelback's Chad Kroeger has revealed that he once paid one of the band's drum technicians to stick his penis into the blades of an electric fan.

Speaking to Men's Health magazine, the frontman said that he had paid the crew member a princely £235 to take part in the penis-related prank during a tour of Germany.

"We've always been very close to our crew, so we've had a lot of fun getting them to do silly, stupid things that could possibly cause them to hurt or injure themselves in some way," he said. "We were in Germany years ago – this was one of my favourite stories – and we were just bored. There was a heat wave going on in Germany.

"In a back room in the venue where we were playing, there was an old fan with a metal blade… And we paid the drum tech about 600 deustchmarks [to] stick his Johnson in the fan."

He went on to say:

He took the money… I can still hear the 'bleh-bleh-blehhhhhhh' of the blade slowly spluttering to a stop, and this blood-curdling scream. It was fantastic. Somebody had video footage of this somewhere that needs to be resurrected and shown at the guy's next birthday party.


In August of this year, it was revealed that Kroeger and his girlfriend, singer Avril Lavigne, were engaged and planning to marry. Lavigne subsequently claimed one of the reasons she was attracted to Kroeger was his sense of humour, stating: "He makes me laugh every day. He takes care of me in every way and is extremely attentive."

Lavigne was previously married to Sum 41's Deryck Whibley, but they split after three years of marriage in 2009. Kroeger mocked Whibley on Twitter earlier this week after he dressed up as the Nickelback singer for a Halloween party, claiming that that he and Lavigne were considering going out for Halloween dressed up as Sum 41, too, but that the band weren't famous enough for them to bother with the effort.
