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.
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.

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.
