Remember Meow the Jewels — when Run the Jewels promised fans they’d remix and replace the entirety of Run the Jewels 2’s instrumentals with cat noises if they raised $40,000? Fans Kickstarted way more than that figure, and Meow the Jewels became a reality. Could Metallica could do the same?
Well, whoever made this video sure hopes so. Today the Internet gifts us the commercial for Meow That’s What I Call Metal! (or just Meowtallica for short), a (for now) purely fictional complication of cats covering Metallica’s most well-known songs. There’s “Meowmeow Meome (Meowmeowmeowium),” “Don’t Meow On Me,” “Meow to Black” and of course, “Meow.” It’s not real, except for this wonderful parody of a late ‘80s/early ‘90s TV infomercial, which you can watch below.
