Tool’s Maynard James Keenan gives a shout-out to Roald of Letterkenney.

Letterkenny is one of the weirdest and funniest things on Canadian TV right now and its slow rise to international attention is reminiscent of what we saw with Trailer Park Boys. This shout-out from Maynard James Keenan will help.

Maynard took to his TikTok account iamthebriefcase (I know! Who would have thought?) to acknowledge another TikTok video featuring the character Roald from Letterkenny, played by Evan Stern.

In Stern’s video, he goes on about how Tool is his favourite band and showed a picture of Maynard wearing a Letterkenny t-shirt. Stern kinda lost his mind over this he was so excited.

Then Maynard published this.
