With the Red Hot Chili Peppers set to join Bruno Mars during the Super Bowl halftime show, it feels like the perfect time to make fun of them. Kroll Show and Beta's Jon Daly have done so, perfectly. “Abracadabralifornia” is an eerily spot-on parody of an Rhcp song, packed with incessant rhyming and California love. It got its start during an episode of the "Comedy Bang! Bang!" podcast. You can listen to the track below, but we recommend also checking out the original site they made for it, rhcp2014.com.
