The pop duo was booed by college football fans on camera and off.
The Chainsmokers are experiencing some negative "Side Effects" of appearing on ESPN's "College GameDay."
The EDM-pop duo, that consists of Alex Pall and Andre Taggart, were chosen to be guest pickers again on the college football pre-game show in Ann Arbor for the Wisconsin vs. Michigan game. Many fans watching were angry that the "Closer" singers, who were booed throughout the show, nabbed the sports gig again and that the network didn't choose a athlete or sports figure instead.
However, what was more upsetting to football fans was that the band justified their picks by non-sports related reasons, like colleges that were located by their favorite bar or strip club. So, naturally, viewers railed on the pop stars on Twitter.
"Katy Perry probably knew more about college football than the Chainsmokers," a viewers tweeted, and another wrote, "My favorite part is that The Chainsmokers have no idea why and think they are just picking the wrong team every step of the way."
Others said they didn't even know who the Chainsmokers were and asked why they were on television show about football to begin with.

I'm so mad that we had to sit through The Chainsmokers picking games on GameDay, and it was absolutely terrible. They picked games based on:— Morgan Moriarty (@Morgan_Moriarty) October 13, 2018
-A bar in Indiana
-An Atlanta strip club
-UCF being a "tight school"
I just got out of the shower and wow The Chainsmokers being the Gameday guest pickers in Ann Arbor is really a stunning indictment of Michigan as an institution huh— Amanda Mull (@amandamull) October 13, 2018
Ann Arbor booing the Chainsmokers is giving me life— Ace Anbender (@AceAnbender) October 13, 2018
Katy Perry probably knew more about college football than the Chainsmokers. #Gameday— Krista Nicole (@KristaNicole17) October 13, 2018
I cannot listen to the chainsmokers doing their picks - last year they picked teams based on their uniform colors and where they’ve hooked up with girls and now they’re saying “UCF bc it’s a tight school”— alexandra (@_allycattt) October 13, 2018
Get these bitches off gameday.
Like, if you HAVE to have guest pickers on Game Day, make them people who actually know something.— Reese (@NoblesReese) October 13, 2018
Idk what “the chainsmokers” are but they just said a team name except for Colorado which apparently they wrote a song about. I want you to be able to explain your pick.
Everyone picked Miami on College GameDay. The Chainsmokers did because Miami is a "party town." pic.twitter.com/prjXzpg0YL— David Wilson (@DBWilson2) October 13, 2018
College game day could’ve brought out literally any 2 bearded white men and I’d have been like ah yes the chainsmokers— ... (@StudleyLee) October 13, 2018
I believe that the Chainsmokers were a Josie and the Pussycats-style plant by Juul to encourage vaping, so they’ve probably changed the guys out like 5 times.— WALL-E Sean (@naeSnnaCcM) October 13, 2018
My favorite part is that The Chainsmokers have no idea why and think they are just picking the wrong team every step of the way.— Zach Shaw (@_ZachShaw) October 13, 2018
The Bingedrinkers would've been a better choice for college football than the Chainsmokers— Charlotte Wilder (@TheWilderThings) October 13, 2018
I know I'm old and all, but who the hell are The Chainsmokers and why the hell were they guest pickers on College GameDay?— John (@jcsnyd) October 13, 2018
The Chainsmokers followed by Weezer on a concert lineup.— Unreasonably early Christmas name. (@Amanda_Kerri) October 13, 2018
That's it. Nothing else. Just a garbage joke observation.
The Chainsmokers guest picking for GameDay went just as expected: horribly. https://t.co/svh7qT30It— Mike J. Asti (@MikeAsti11) October 13, 2018
Who the fuck are the Chainsmokers, and why are they on TV https://t.co/GLlcS8bDw5— Owen Good (@owengood) October 13, 2018
COLLEGE GAMEDAY, 1987-LIKE 2015 OR SO: Let's have famous celebrities who root for the schools we're talking about on the show!— Rodger Sherman (@rodger) October 13, 2018
