Have you ever wanted to tell Lars Ulrich how you really feel about the drums on St. Anger? Do you feel some kind of monster brewing in your gut right now? A concert in Tampa will give you the chance to vent everything but your spleen on a toilet designed to look like the famed Metallica drummer.
The unsettling design comes courtesy of Prince Midnight, a musician and sculptor who famously claims to have made a guitar out of his uncle's bones. While the provenance of his skeletal guitar is unclear, there's no denying the commode's resemblance to Lars (he even has little drumsticks if you're on the fence).
The Lars toilet. Installed and fully functional. Available for public use Dec 3 in the bathroom of Brass Mug during the @princemidnightx concert. Be there! Hail Lars! #larsulrich #Metallica #toilet #bathroom #art pic.twitter.com/4b5bBC3EuD— Prince Midnight (@princemidnightx) November 24, 2021
The Ulrich throne even has the approval of longtime Metallica bassist Robert Trujillo. In an interview with MMA Junkie, the host surprised him with a shot of the much-shared toilet.
"Oh my god! You’re kidding. This is incredible, how come I didn’t see this?" he said. "This is a work of art, I want one. Where can I buy 'em?... I’m sure [Lars will] hear about this when I see him."
The toilet will be installed at Tampa's Brass Mug as part of an immersive toilet art show showcasing Midnight's work on Friday, Dec. 3. If you're interested in the sounds he gets out of a bone guitar, he'll also be playing the Mug that night. Tickets are $7 in advance, $10 at the door.
