Metal Band Goes Greyhound in New Commercial

by Jon Bloggin' Rogo

Heavy metal bands are sometimes used for humorous effect in advertising, as seen in a compilation of funniest metal commercials below. In addition, ESPN ran a Sportscenter ad with John Clayton as a Slayer fan, and the network just unveiled a new one featuring Metallica looking for work since Yankees pitcher Mariano Rivera retired and isn't coming into games to Enter Sandman .

Now Greyhound is getting into the act with a new 60 second spot. It features a metal band coming off stage and getting into a bus. But, its not a tour bus, its a Greyhound bus. Their manager has booked dollar fares for the entire band. The bus is packed with regular passengers.
