Watch: Dave Grohl surprises superfan on Instagram Live and performs along to Dire Straits’ ‘Money for Nothing’

Pat Finnerty was hosting a nine-hour 'Grohl-A-Thon'

Dave Grohl recently surprised his own superfan Pat Finnerty by joining in on his Instagram Live.

Finnerty hosted a nine-hour “Grohl-A-Thon” on Instagram Live in an attempt to get the Foo Fighters frontman to sing along to Dire Straits’ “Money for Nothing.” The punchline is a running joke for Finnerty, as he’s hosted several socially distanced rooftop concerts with a cardboard cutout of Grohl.

Finnerty’s commitment paid off when he received a video request from actor Andrew Sikking, who was attending a dinner party at Grohl’s house that night. Grohl went on to sing the “I want my MTV” line from the track, and eventually played drums along to the tune.
