VIDEO: A ‘Freaks & Geeks’ Tribute to John Bonham
Television has been responsible for some incredible tributes, but this tribute to John Bonham on the cult classic series Freak & Geeks is one of the funniest.
Set in suburban Detroit in 1980, the show follows the awkward high school lives of Lindsay Weir (Linda Cardellini) and Sam Weir (John Francis Daley) and their friends, and among those friends is Nick Andopolis (Jason Segel), a massive Led Zeppelin fan.
In the clips below, Nick is humorously distraught over the death of John Bonham, and then later in the same episode tries to use his grief as an excuse to get the second base with Lindsay.
It goes over about as well as you’d expect.
