Members of Metallica, Pearl Jam, Soundgarden, Mastodon, and more Appear in Funny or Die Skit “Alice in Chains Twenty-Three”

“AIC 23,” a new skit posted to Funny or Die, tells the story of Alan Poole McLard, a Film Studies Professor at a community college, who is trying to make a documentary film about Alice in Chains to coincide with the release of their new album, The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here. Without the cooperation of the members of Alice in Chains, McLard does his best to interview other musicians that may, or may not, have influenced AIC throughout the years. The film includes cameos from Lars Ulrich and Robert Trujillo from Metallica, Unta Gleeben Glabben Globben from Necrobotica, Ann and Nancy Wilson from Heart, Donnie “Skeeter” Dollarhide Jr. from the Singing Dollarhides, Mike McCready from Pearl Jam, Nesta Cleveland, Kim Thayil from Soundgarden, Duff McKagan from Guns N’ Roses and Loaded, and others. Check it out below and let us know what you think in the comments.

    Goddamn. This was like a Portlandia sketch, but somehow they found it a way to make it less funny than even that. Oof.

    (spoiler alert) Too funny! I almost didn’t recognize that those first guys the interviewed were Jerry, Sean, Mike and William. They did this same mockumentary thing with their Nona tapes. I love AIC for their awesome music, but them having a sense of humor makes me love them even more! Can’t wait to get their new music. :)
