VIDEO OF THE BIG FOUR PHOTO SHOOT IS EVEN FUNNIER THAN THE PIC ITSELF
So I’m still in Atlanta observing Daath as they make their new album (which, unless something goes really, hideously awry between the time I leave and its release date, is going to be so fucking great… people really have no idea what they’re in for), but I just checked my e-mail for the first time in awhile and Ryan Badami sent us a link to the below video of the Big Four photo shoot, and some of it is so goddamn funny I just had to take a minute to write about it.
First of all, good for Hetfield for giving Mustaine that little fist bump. It seems like seeing Mustaine after all this time must be liking being at a party and seeing that crazy bitch you broke up with a million years ago but who is, for some reason, still not over you. So I appreciate Hetfield’s attempt to make things at least kinda-sorta not awkward.
But what mostly amuses me about this video is Joey Belladonna. I know a lot of you think I give him too much shit, but whatever. The dissenting opinion gets its moment in the sun, too, and if you don’t find Joey’s activities in this video funny, you probably have no sense of humor.
Look to the back for Joey waving, then make sure you keep your eyes on him for the rest of the video.
