If you're at all familiar with the melodic-death-metal outfit Nekrogoblikon — who are out on the final cross-country Vans Warped Tour all summer, supporting its latest album, Welcome to Bonkers — then you should be aware of John Goblikon, the group's monstrous, green mascot. What you might not know is that Mr. Goblikon, on top of his mascoting duties, has an internet talk show titled "Right Now," on which he's interviewing a few of Warped's finest artists, including Every Time I Die vocalist Keith Buckley. Watch all the awkward interaction that ensued when the two got together above, and below read the band's official description of the series and episode.
"A few years ago John Goblikon decided to parlay his internet fame into a talk show ... The premise was simple: John would get some of his famous friends to sit down and have a chat with him about their careers, goals, lives, etc. In typical John fashion, he didn't really prepare and just winged the interviews. Most of the time, completely misinformed. John, along with his assistant Jerry, filmed two episodes and the web loved it ... then he went to Chili's and got drunk ... Season one ended at that. Cut to a few weeks ago, John got word from the guys of Nekrogoblikon that they were going to be on Warped Tour and John thought it would be a perfect opportunity to resurrect the hit series on the road. So, RIGHT NOW, please enjoy the first new episode of RIGHT NOW with John Goblikon featuring Keith Buckley."
