Metal Insider’s Top 5: Funny metal commercials

Posted by on September 16, 2016

1) Zyx – Cough Drops

Why can’t there be commercials like this one in the United States? As of now, this is the funniest commercial I have seen in my entire life. The campaign is straightforward storytelling, and it works perfectly well (something ad agencies should take a few notes from). It begins with the filming of a brutal Finnish black metal music video, and you notice the singer seems to have a sore throat.  He takes a Zyx cough drop, and the medicine seemed to work instantly as his vocals dramatically shift.


Bonus – Dad Metal

We have all seen those commercials back in the eighties and nineties, as they include compilations of your favorite ballad, or heavy metal act, etc. Well, there is this Funny or Die video that has been floating all over the internet, and I think it deserves a bonus here. It (sort of) is a compilation and the perfect mockery of those cheesy commercials.
