Last week, ESPN aired a hilarious commercial featuring Metallica that played off the band’s providing of Mariano Rivera his entrance music, “Enter Sandman.”

And now, there are bloopers.

Now that Rivera is retired, the spot showed the metal giants as virtually unemployed, trying various angles at the SportsCenter offices to continue contributing, including John Daly’s entrance music and guitar lessons.

Virtually every gag in the original reel gets three or four alternate takes. Best one? Scott Van Pelt’s reaction to their Daly music with “It’s a little bit aggressive” to which Kirk Hammett responds earnestly, “Thank you.”


Metallica are currently at work on their next album. It will be their first since 2008’s Death Magnetic. And though that has been a long time, the band has felt active throughout, with regular concert appearances, including a recent headlining spot at Glastonbury.
