Evidently, at the Brea, CA show on Saturday, the Velvet Knights were up to their old tricks...

Their show began with a body being carried onto the field (replete with funeral march). A short eulogy was given, and then the body sat up... and was wearing an Impulse cap.

Some people have been quite offended. Your thoughts? Classless? Good fun? VK being VK?

They have been equally as irreverent in the past. Reading the reviews of Impulse' show, it might have been pretty close to accurate. It would have been more tasteful (and quite a bit funnier if you ask me) to have the corpse (or corps?!?) in a vintage VK uniform from their heyday.

Holy Crap, even I find that in bad taste! What are they thinking??
