I have re-watched this video like 30 times since I put it up. It's SO GOOD! I think this for many reasons. One because, like the Arnold Schwarzenegger post above, it's just good editing. Some guy took the time to record an intentionally shitty and smooth jazz version, then had to sync it up with existing footage, while tirelessly slowing down/speeding up parts so that everything came together as seamlessly as possible. Plus, it speaks volumes about how totally shitty and pointless Metallica became after the mid-90s and highlights the extent to which a once powerful song can fall so far. I mean, compare 2010 Metallica to 1991 Metallica:
Obviously, there is no comparison. Youth, alcoholism, thousands of Russian teenagers and Jason Newstead make for an infinitely more compelling performance. These are players at the height of their powers in the primes of their lives. The husky shells they would become 19 years later is of course depressing and a joke. Has everyone seen Some Kind of Monster? Everyone needs to see Some Kind of Monster.
