Now we know that advertising is not that hard, and we showed you before some marking ideas that literally throw marking out the window. Here are some commercials that totally forget about what the product is, and try to in silly ways include metal bands & genre into them. For general public, well they would stop watching probably after first 5 seconds. The great way to do is how Honda did it in 2011 using Judas Priest Music. However these fail completely and hilariously!


This commercial can be split in two parts, the 2nd part where the guy actually blows fire balls and later swallows fire on the show. And than eats a KFC meal that is hotter than the trick he just pulled. This is the part that makes clear sence and works well. However the first part of the commercial is a really brutal display of Black Metal and a concert. Which well can literally frighten people. Not to mention that the General public that eat in KFC are not metal heads! Unfortunately

KFC is hotter than actual Fire

Arabic MTV

MTV does a great job for alot of channels, althou mostly these days its more shows and commercial music. But this commercial for MTV Arabic, or MTV Arabia these days know. Well will not help that much. Not only is the Arabic culture not fully happy about metal, as know widely. It adds a funny twist to the general commercial. But that is it! Does not add much to MTV reputation in Arabic countries.

Stage dive hurts us the most

Coop Prix

So we all know Norway, loves metal, especially Black metal! It spawned so many famous artists and keeps on kicking. However you will never know that this is actually a commercial for Coop Prix discount stores! Metal heads ran out of food, one guy sends his budies to get some more supplies. HE dresses pretty in pink and its well ridiculous!
Does it make any sence or has any connection to Coop Prix? The general public is rather more afriad of Metal Heads than happy. Remember, church burnings?

With nothing to eat, one guy sends his to friends to shop. Than he shows his true fashion color!


Producer comes into the hotel room of our black metal band. They like golf. HE says that it does not meat their brutal style. He cant sell them if the fans do not believe they are only capable of hate. They only know hate and that he will ship their golf clubs with fedex next time. Fedex really went funny on this one. Yes they try to add a Human rouch to Metal bands. But connecting it with fedex? Absurd

We love golf

History Channel

Summary, American Death Metal band SUFFOCATION is busting it out. While two janitors try to talk about them. Next thing you know, one of the guys says that they have their roots in the Dark Ages and boom. its History Channel commercial about the fucking Dark Ages! What have the dark Ages to do with Modern Death Metal?
Plus Soffucation are an American Death Metal band, and the Dark Ages were for most part in Europe? No connection really!

Epic, but pointless


When Rome fell, this network of trade and commerce collapsed and the European World was set into chaos. It took seven hundred years of wars, plague, and poverty before the continent came out of it and was moved into the Renaissance.
The only connection might be the lyrics, but firstly you hardly hear any lyrics and you would have to be a fan to know what they actually sing about!


Me, Myself, and ISUFFOCATION was initially founded as SOCIAL DISEASE during 1986. The band debuted with the 3 track demo tape Reincremation during July 1990.SUFFOCATIONs inaugural EP release Human Waste emerged in May 1991,

Toyota get int touch with your dark side. Fits more to starwars. Especially when you take an example on this commercial. This cool heavy metal guy reads lyrics out load. That may be disturbing to alot of people. And you have no idea that it is something about toyota until the last 2 seconds. Flies with metalheads. What about the general public? The will run in fear!


Political Campaign Ad

Remember our pitch about the most disturbing Campaign Ads from Poland, well this Campaign ad is all about metal. Even thou metalheads would love him. I do not believe the general public will. But he tried so he gets points for that.

He has a voice of the dark angel!

My goal is freedom and enough of stupid wars (simple translation of some stuff he says)

  1. You made some decent points there. I looked on the internet for the issue and found most individuals will go along with with your website.
