Country Star Paisley Burns A Razorback Rug

File this one under “Much Ado About Nothing.”

As part of a tour prank, Arkansas-based group Eden’s Edge recently stole the West Virginia welcome mat that country star Brad Paisley keeps in front of his tour bus.  They replaced his WVU rug with a Razorback rug.  Video here.

Paisley — a West Virginia native — responded by lighting fire to the Hog rug.  His salvo was also captured on tape.

Well, whoops-pig-sooie… some folks might not like that.

Of course, anyone taking offense at a harmless prank like this really isn’t worth worrying much about:

Of course, anyone taking offense at a harmless prank like this really isn’t worth worrying much about. Well Mr. John Pennington, I personally take offense to this. We are very proud of our Razorbacks! This was very immature on Brad's part, and I for one will not be buying any of his music!

If I came and replaced any of your precious Razorback merchandise with LSU anything, what would you do with my item? Cherish it forever, I think not. If someone took my tiger purse and replaced it with a hog, I would burn it to! I am being honest!

Now had it been any other rug, the Arkies would have loved it. Lighten the heck up! When folks stop being able to laugh, then you're on a down hill slide.

Cut Brad some slack, I'm from Arkansas and I love the Hogs but I also know a prank is a prank. I'll still buy all his records he is terrific.

i live in Arkansas. My family is full of HOGS fans. And I understand loyalty to your team and state. But can any of you honestly say that if someone stole your Razorback rug and replaced with a WVU that you would not light that piece of crap on fire. If roles were reversed you would all do teh same thing then piss on the ashes.

I TOTALLY AGREE. #1. I didn't see Anywhere in the video where Brad Lite it on Fire, yes he did pour lighter fluid on it, but again, I didn't see BRAD Lite the rug on fire. #2. So Where is Brad's WVU welcome mat, I didn't see anyone in the video trying to give Brad's welcome mat back...SO if HOG FANS or whoever STOLE Brad's WVU mat didn't come forward & GIVE the WVU mat back, then WHY DO THEY HAVE ANY SAY IN THIS MATTER, They Are theives, AREN'T THEY ??? AND JUST SO YOU ALL KNOW, I'M NOT EVEN A BIG FAN OF BRADS.

Ooohhh...even though it would be a funny prank, he's messing with Southerners...his target group. Not too smart. I go to school at UA and it kinda pisses me off. Won't be the same anymore.

Funny Prank: Stealing a friends favorite college team's rug and putting your favorite college team's rug in its place, and then the said friend sets it on fire.

Idiotic Prank: Toomer's Corner

Big difference between having fun and being an idiot.

Take it all in fun, I am sure both of them were. And don't be so melodramatic "Won't be the same anymore"......../slit wrists. You will wake up tomorrow forgetting you ever seen this.

Ha, it's hard to take-out a razorback; even with some lighter fluid and matches. I'm comforted by the flame retardancy of the rug since I have the same one in my laundry room. With record temps, I think our boys felt like that hog during practice last week.

I just think it's dumb that a country music artist would fuck with southern football fans, doesn't he know we're all batshit crazy?

I doubt southern football fans elected a weak-minded, F-bomb-dropping fool as our spokesman. Thankfully, there are plenty of us who aren't any flavor of crazy.

Don't know much about country music, but I am huge Razorback fan. Hehe... regardless, the entire situation, from prank to prank, was funny. Go Hogs!

Eh, I would be upset if Brad Paisley still made good music. His last album sold on name only, and the lead single "Old Alabama" more on Alabama's name than his.

Out of curiosity, though, was this in Arkansas, West Virginia, or somewhere else? You said "Arkansas-based group," implying that it occurred out of state. If so, kudos to Eden's Edge for repping Arkansas away from home!

@deeloveslsu
@deeloveslsu

Yeah Eden's Edge are from AR, they were in the background laughing their heads off because they realize that it was a joke!! They are on tour with Brad Paisley. The bands prank each other all the time, one of the other singers on tour took Brad's very awesome Corvette and replaced it with a battery operated Camaro! Sounds like a fun bunch to me.
