Spoof videos can be hilarious and wonderful when they’re well done. A spoof video that appears to show Metallica playing the Pokémon theme song fits that description.
According to Antimusic: “James Hetfield and co have been edited to match the Redeemers’ version of the song by YouTuber Golpe Baixo, who was inspired by the Pokemon GO explosion”.
The video is quite well done and is almost believable. Almost. It follows in the wake of nu metal/hard rock band 810 getting a similar spoof video treatment earlier this week.
Watch and enjoy the video:
