Foo Fighters released a fake advertisement, titled "Dave Grohl For FreshPotix," on YouTube on Wednesday (October 28).

Grohl, starring as a former coffee addict in the spoof, is seen speaking up for the drug, which carries the slogan "It Works (Kinda)," saying it's a "new drug to help coffee addicts like me manage their coffee addiction."

"Ten years ago, I was in the grips of a debilitating caffeine addiction. My ability to maintain personal relationships and bowel movements were compromised by crippling sleep deprivation and noxious coffee breath," Grohl says in voiceover.

He adds, "As the bean took over, I found myself doing anything for a fix. My roast grew darker and darker until I finally hit pot bottom. I couldn't be there for the ones I love when they needed me the most."

The ad shows him struggling to come out of his addiction and even failing to be there for the band's rehearsals.

The spoof ad warns of serious side effects like "violent fits of rage toward left-handed people, extra toe, urge to found your own colony, bald ass, CyrusVirus - your voice changes to that of Billy Ray or Miley" and more.

"With FreshPotix, I no longer have to shoplift or sell my body for that fantastic buzz that kept me awake for 36 hours at a time and sent me to the hospital for a CAT scan and psychotic evaluation," Grohl says in the ad.
