The Ad for <i>Guitar Hero: Metallica</i> Needs Some Pants (and Something Resembling "Funny") (Video)

Guitar Hero: Metallica is in stores now ( did you enter here to win a copy?), and keeping with the series' head-scratching advertising gimmick (having non-musicians play Guitar Hero , which makes absolutely no sense at all) the Metallica fellas are appearing in an ad for the game that features NCAA coaches Roy Williams, Rick Pitino, Coach K (it's too early to try to spell the Duke coach's name), and Bobby Knight. The ad is pretty rough--Knight throws some drums, 50-year-old James Hetfield tells the 80-year-old Knight to put some pants on--and I'm not sure even the smooth sounds of Matt Pinfield's voice at the end will convince people who are on the fence to buy this game.

I'm so glad John Wooden is too old (and too dignified) to have been a part of this.

wow...cant google Krzyzewski? lol. Andy dude its just a tv add not some martin scorsese full feature. As a college B-Ball fan its good to see these old farts still have some swagger left. Besides Coach Knight throwing drums is classic....


It's still pretty stupid to think that this game is not gonna sell through the goddamn roof. The song list stands for itself, despite your "on the fence" comments. Old school Metallica is better than anything Guitar Hero has had so far.

Commercial is stupid, but the game should sell pretty well

You're stupid Daba. Calhoun couldn't be in it because he was too busy illegally contacting players and breaking NCAA Rule violaitons. I hope UConn loses by 40.

j/k. I'm never fan of instigating yellow on yellow crime. I do hope they lose though.
