To address the rumors, the band teased an “Official” announcement on Twitter about their relationship status.

That announcement? A prank video published Wednesday night about how they’re splitting up… NOT!

The 7-minute-plus piece is one big joke about Grohl leaving the band, which is funny, because HE IS NOT LEAVING.

Then the other Foo Fighters are seen trying to revive the band, and send it in “a new direction… something hip” with a new frontman, they say.

Nick Lachey tries out for the Foo Fighters in a parody video about the band’s rumored break-up.

Though Nick Lachey is not listed as one of the band’s possible new singers, the former 98 Degrees frontman says he “Got as fast as I could” to prove he has the pipes to replace Grohl.
