"It … sounds like what they would actually do, if you’re just casually listening to it. If you listen closely, it makes no sense—in an aggressive way. But it’s not far away from it—like if you listen to the Chili Peppers, they are just ding-a-ding-a-ding-a-ding-dong [laughs]. I have respect for them. I hope they weren’t insulted by it. I mean, anytime you’re making fun of someone, that’s a possibility. I think they would agree though that they kind of deserved it. Chad Smith from the Peppers tweeted it out with the message 'hahahaha,' so he liked it … What I wanted was to be invited into the band to sing. [...]
As far as character showcases go, it doesn't get much more elaborate than Kroll Show.
When Nick Kroll's sketch series on Comedy Central returned for its second season in January, it was clear that he had set his sights firmly on the pseudo-celebrity culture of reality television, with a lineup of characters inspired by the most despicable monsters that crawled out of the Jersey Shore and Real Housewives muck: the Guido womanizer Bobby Bottleservice, the psychopathic publicists of "PubLIZity," the man-child toilet-baby C-Czar, the self-destructively vain Rich Dicks, etc. But if the first season served to introduce the freakshow, the second season unleashed them out into [...]
