The Nickelblock App: A Faux App We Wish Were Real

Nickelback is often the target of ridicule, but even the band would have to admit that this spoof phone app ad is pretty funny.

Take a look at “Nickelblock,” a creation from the comedic duo of Moll & Rell.  Trying to get over an ex but can’t stop stalking them on social media?  Simply download “Nickelblock,” and every time you try to peek at their Facebook, Twitter et al. pages, Nickelback’s “Photograph” will play.


Okay…so the app isn’t real, but we’re sure if it were, plenty of people would download “Nickelblock.”  Those "side effects," however, make all of those real side effects listed on many prescription drug ads seem tolerable.  (Yes...we're including "anal leakage" and "death.")

(On an unrelated note:  For those of you out there who still say women aren’t funny, kindly go f*ck yourselves.)
