Go To

  • The video for "Dani California", where the band plays Captain Ersatzes of various musicians, like Buddy Holly, Elvis Presley, The Beatles/The Monkees, Jimi Hendrix, P-Funk, David Bowie, Cheap Trick, '70s Punk, and Nirvana.
  • The "Can't Stop" video, which is basically just the band dicking around with office supplies.
  • Chad Smith's drum-off against his doppleganger, Will Ferrell. It goes exactly how you would expect. Especially the chat beforehand.
  • Their appearance on The Late Late Show With James Corden is widely considered to be one of the funniest Carpool Karaokes produced.
    • The segment opens with James getting lost and the peppers (already in the car) giving him some rather unhelpful directions.
    • Immediately after "Can't Stop" ends, James and Flea break out into "Food Glorious Food" from Oliver.
    • Two words: "Heemy Leemy"
    "Are you sure it was just marijuana?"
    • Tony and James wrestling in front of a random house.
    • Flea singing along to the bass parts for all the songs.
    • James, Tony and Flea all going shirtless.
  • Josh and Chad's attempts at promoting a songbook of songs from "The Getaway"
  • Many of their earlier songs were intended to be humorous in some way.
  • During the Getaway Tour, a fan managed to throw a bra on the stage partway through a performance of "Give It Away". Josh picked it up and continued to play the song with the bra hanging from his guitar, and later, wearing it.
  • Flea's visit with Koko the gorilla.
