10 million fans signed the petition
For April Fool's Day, Metal Underground ran a spoof story reporting that the Wolf of Wall Street star will appear on stage with Meshuggah during the final show on this year's 25th anniversary summer tour of North America.

It explained that DiCaprio's management had announced that he agreed to make an appearance following a petition by fans who watched the following video showing Leo's facial expressions to be very similar to those of Meshuggah lead singer Jens Kidman.

A fictional petition sparked by the video, which has had over 3 million views, was said to have gained 10 million signatures.

Now, a real petition has surfaced asking for Leo to join Meshuggah at Bonnaroo Music Festival. The petition has already gained over 7,000 supporters and states that DiCaprio 'must wear a suit, and everyone in the crowd must pound their chests'.

We'll be signing!
