Well, they’re in a TV commercial, that is. Yup, UK power metal group Dragonforce is now hitting the small screen courtesy of Capitol One mobile banking in a new marketing campaign.
In the commercial, which you can watch below, guitarists Herman Li and Sam Totman are engaged in a vicious guitar solo battle (which is shot almost exactly like the battle in “Through The Fire And The Flames”). While one guitarist is rocking out, the other whips out his cellphone and checks his banking through the mobile banking app. Oh, and they also happen to be standing on an asteroid as it floats through space next to a blazing star. Is it strange that my only thought was, “I highly doubt the Wi-Fi signal is strong enough for them to access their data plan.”?
Dragonforce’s latest album is The Power Within, which came out April 15th, 2012.
