College Hoops Coaches vs. Metallica

Any game that asks me to put on pants automatically has two strikes against it.

I think this ad for Guitar Hero: Metallica would have been better if it were the same foursome from the Guitar Hero: World Tour ads. But that probably says more about my total cluelessness when it comes to college hoops than anything else. All I know is that Coach K was in a 16-bit college basketball game that I didn't play.

Let's! Watch!

  


NEXT WEEK WE'LL LOOK AT A TOTALLY SICK 'CUDA TUNE INNNNNAAAHHHHH
I actually think that's a pretty great ad. But you know, it really bears repeating--any game that asks me to put on pants automatically has two strikes against it. Also, is it just me, or does James Hetfield look like he should be hosting some sort of car show about mad-built Mopar motors on the Speed network? There's something about his short hair and goatee look that just screams "OH YEEEEEAHAH LISTEN TO THAT BIG, LOPING CAM" to me.

Read more about Metallica and Guitar Hero on the game's official site. Read more about sick-ass loping cams at MOST OUTSTANDING PARTS ALWAYS RADICAL DOT COM.

OK, that's not actually a web site. By law and by virtue of the blogger's code, I'd be misleading you if I didn't come out and say that. But if you're looking to start a Mopar fan site, feel free to register that URL and use it. You have my permission. I'm totally not just padding this out so the photo and caption look slightly less out-of-place. Guitar Hero: Metallica is in stores now.

Um, Jeff...sorry, man...but that commercial is infinitely cooler than just about ANYTHING just because it has Matt Pinfield doing voice-over on it...


...and I love my 120 Minutes, fool!!!

That was actually a pretty good ad.

not too bad

That's a pretty funny commercial, love how Bobby Knight says "we're playing the guitar heeero"

Saw this during the UNC game yesterday. Though I have no interest in the game, the advertisement is pretty much perfect. About 9 ALSDJKF-illion people watch these basketball games, and I'm guessing that most of them had a fun accident in the pants when they saw this.

and why do you hate lars? except for no valid reason beyond the whole napster thing which he had a point or that he makes more money then you and is one of the better drummers in the past 30 years.

I didn't see this one, but I did see the one where they blow up the house. Still both are entertaining.

I totally don't find the Guitar Hero commercials funny, at all. I don't care if it's Metallica or Heidi  Klum, it still sucks ass.
