This is probably the coolest version of “shooting the boot” we’ve ever seen.
At a recent Pearl Jam show in Sweden, Eddie Vedder had an incredible back and forth with a fan in the audience which resulted in Vedder drinking wine from the fan’s red Chuck Taylor.
Per Blabbermouth, the fan had a sign that read “Please sign my shoe,” which Vedder addressed saying, “You picked the wrong guy.” The audience then backed the fan and pressured Vedder into signing her shoe. Vedder eventually caved and had the fan throw her Chucks on stage. He signed one shoe and sent back to her, along with a bottle of wine, which the fan proceeded to chug, much to the delight of the crowd. The video is what followed:
First, singing “Let It Go” and now this! If Eddie keeps pulling these kinds of stunts (and fans continue to post videos of them), we’re going to have to start calling him “Viral Vedder.”
