What you do in the confines of your vehicle is your business, but we cannot tell a lie: If we drove past this guy shamelessly rocking out to Metallica in his car, we’d probably stop and take it all in just like the person who filmed him in action.
In the 10-second clip posted by YouTube user Karbofos02, a mature gentleman in glasses and a black t-shirt can be seen driving while hardcore jamming out to Metallica, executing some of THE most intense head-banging, fist-pumping moves we’ve seen in a while. Apparently, Metallica’s “For Whom the Bell Tolls” has this sort of effect on those who listen to it, at least according to die-hard metal heads who have seen the video circulating online.
Here’s the original track for those of you who could use a good Metallica pump up in your lives:
As for the official internet-famous, rocking out roadster, he’s been dubbed everything from a hero to a “Heavy Metal Grandpa,” and we totally approve of his complete and utter disregard for anyone’s judgment. Most of us are way too shy and maybe concerned about what fellow drivers would think if we completely lost our shit behind the wheel at the sound of our favorite song.
But it appears that there are quite a few people who can relate. The video of Metallica Guy’s steering wheel jam session has over 640,000 views and counting.
LOL. We are obsessed with this dude. But for his safety and that of the other drivers on the road, we’re going to encourage anyone else who tries to implement this antidote to road rage to at least keep their eyes open in the process.
