The Red Hot Chili Peppers were asked to sign some posters at an airport recently – but they weren’t their posters; they were Metallica posters.

Red Hot Chili Peppers & Metallica

In Belarus, California band Red Hot Chili Peppers were held up by customs. Inside the customs officials’ office, they were asked to sign Metallica merchandise, which included a number of posters and CDs. Though the musicians tried to explain the mix-up, they were urged on to sign the merch anyway.

Flea posted a picture of the strange incident on Instagram.
