A fairly amazing faux-Red Hot Chili Peppers song is making the rounds online in advance of the band’s appearance Sunday at Super Bowl XLVIII. “Abracadabralifornia” was written by Comedy Bang Bang and Kroll Show regular Jon Daly, and includes all sorts of spot-on Kiedis aping and scatting, as well as a bunch of funny and dumb California references.

In one of the best episodes of Comedy Bang! Bang! from 2013, Zach Galifianakis and Jon Daly introduced host Scott Aukerman to their Red Hot Chili Peppers fan club, the Pepper Men.

Other highlights this week include 'Comedy Bang Bang' and 'Blue Jasmine.'

It's a well known fact in Hollywood that there's a clause in the contract of every TV show that they must invite Zach Galifianakis to play Santa at least once! But IFC's Comedy Bang Bang is the first to take advantage of the rule (which strangely has been on the books since 1948, a full 21 [...]
