Dave Grohl has released a sequel to his classic(?) ‘Fresh Pots’ video, which portrayed him as out of control and in the grips of an addiction to caffeine. Now, a decade later, in a spoof advert for a drug called FreshPotix, he shows how he overcame his problem.

“Ten years ago, I was in the grips of a debilitating caffeine addiction”, says a sombre Grohl in the video. “My ability to maintain personal relationships and solid bowel movements were compromised by crippling sleep deprivation and noxious coffee breath. As the bean took over, I found myself doing anything for a fix”.

You then get to watch Grohl ingest coffee grounds in a variety of ways, from snorting them to putting them in a sandwich. But that’s all changed since he started taking FreshPotix, which lists an alarming range of side-effects, he says.

Anyway, you can watch the new video below, and then prepare yourself for the completion of this trilogy in 2030.
