Even with the world spinning out of control every day, it’s heartwarming to know that Tenacious D are still out there making the world a higher place. Last we heard from the zaftig duo, vocalist Jack Black was dancing to “WAP” in a Speedo; now, the band have teamed up with Yeti Coolers to take part in an auction that will benefit out-of-work roadies.

Tenacious D are one of many artists contributing their names to Yeti Coolers’ One For The Roadies auction, where musicians are customizing coolers in order to benefit out-of-work road crews. Other bands and artists taking part in the auction include Beastie Boys, My Morning Jacket, Social Distortion, and the Decemberists.

“YETI sent each artist a Roadie® Cooler to personally customize for their fans,” explains the website for the One For The Roadies auction. “Now that all the coolers are designed and ready to rock, the goal is to raise funds for loyal road crews through this exclusive roadie auction. Happy bidding.

“That said, if you already have a cooler but still want to join in on the cause — that’s great,” added the organizers. “Just click the “Donate” button on the top right-hand corner of the screen and you can donate directly to Crew Nation from there.”

As you can see, the D’s cooler involves hand-drawn portraits of the band as alien…elf…sasquatches? Or something? It’s super cute, whatever it is. Take a look:

Not only do the band have the coolers up for auction, they’re also giving away the following merch items alongside their Yeti:

  • A Sasquatch shirt
  • A Tenacious D face mask
  • A ‘Dad’ hat
  • A debut album Devil hat

The cooler auction and links to the merch can be found via the auction’s website. Obviously, bidding on this cooler is expensive, but if you have a couple of grand lying around, go for it.
