In a move eerily reminiscent of Dethklok's performance of the Duncan Hines Coffee Jingle
(albeit at the opposite pole), Metallica will be performing in Antarctica
. Just as the fictional death metal band partnered with a fictional coffee brand, Metallica bring their increasingly cartoonish presence to an audience "...of fans from Argentina, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica and Mexico who enter a contest through Coca-Cola Zero." Oddly, the band will be performing inside a dome on the Carlini Argentine Base with no amplification, and the performance will be transmitted to fans through headphones.
For added irony, both James Hetfield and Kirk Hammett voiced fans on the first episode of Metalocalypse
, which featured the cartoon band performing above the Arctic Circle.
