Guitar Hero: Metallica Catches March Madness Fever

By Chris Scott Barr

It’s March, which means that there is some sort of madness involving college basketball. There’s a small nagging part of me that says I should care, but when it comes to basketball, I just don’t. It would seem that Activision’s marketing team is “on the ball” when it comes to the latest Guitar Hero: Metallica ad. Perhaps you’ll recognize a few of the old guys in the above clip.

I’m from Indiana (and no, I don’t know why we’re called Hoosiers either) so I immediately recognized the fake band’s frontman as being Bobby Knight. I thought having him throw the drum kit was a nice touch. The other band members are Roy Williams, Rick Pitino and Mike “Coach K” Krzyzewski.
