Scott Stapp Reviews New Movie 'Creed' And Doesn't Know Why It's About Boxing

What are you thankful for in this holiday season? Mashed potatoes? A merciful day off from work? Red wine? Friends and family of all colors and creeds? We’re thankful for all of these things, and also for the Internet’s occasional gems. And the video released this week of Scott Stapp—frontman of late ’90s Christian rock band Creed—reviewing the new boxing film Creed is nothing short of a gift.

In a segment titled “Can You Take Me to the Movies,” a play on Creed’s 1999 hit “Can You Take Me Higher,” Stapp offers his thoughts on the drama, which saw its wide release in theaters Wednesday. He doesn’t try to hide his disappointment, noting in the review, “As Creed the movie unfolded, there wasn’t much that resembled what happened in Creed, the band.”

The Rocky spinoff, starring Michael B. Jordan as Apollo Creed’s son, is presumably about legacy and boxing—a lot of boxing—which makes Stapp a bit sour. In the video, he reminds us that “one time I punched a guy from 311,” a brawl that coincidentally happened 10 years ago Thursday, but as far as actual boxing goes, he’s stayed out of the ring.

File this one under funny.
