Avenged Sevenfold Help Dude Propose Marriage

Avenged Sevenfold

Metallica Star In Latest SportsCenter Ads

James and Lars in the ad

The commercials for ESPN’s SportsCenter are often hilarious, but the latest one kinds of flops. Surprise, surprise…it stars Metallica. The new spot will air during tonight’s Home Run Derby.
