There's nothing we love for that some good old Chinese food, especially if we get a free Chinese fortune cookie.
We assumed The Killers were the same, but it all went a bit pear-shaped when they found the lyrics to one of their songs in a Panda Express fortune cookie. The 'fortune' read, 'Smile Like You Mean It' which is the lyrics to one of the band's most famous songs.
The band called out the Chinese chain on Twitter saying, 'I'm thinkin' orange chicken for life and we'll let you off the hook for using our stuff.'
