After all, you do sell Ride The Lightning boxer shorts on your Web site. Not to mention thongs. How could you pass up such an easy cross-promotional opportunity?

Come on, an ad featuring one of you guys in this would be gold for the Spike/G4 crowd.

(I’m didn’t even want to mention this. But dude.)

    Thanks, Metallica. I understand now: men who spend time together in their underwear should be gagged and tied to a tree located dangerously close to a burning house.

    @Mike Conklin:

    With a few minor adjustments, that could’ve made a pretty good KKK commercial.

    You may be reading a bit much into it.

    They had one shot at this and blew it by making everyone think about Klum.
