Slayer’s ‘Raining Blood’ Used in Halloween Themed Google Chromebook Commercial

Sony Holy Slayer , we’ve got yet another mainstream commercial using metal music to sell their product. This time, Google has used the Slayer anthem ‘Raining Blood’ for a Halloween-themed commercial for the company’s new Chromebook. The commercial is mostly text-based, and reads, “For little devils, for scaring off viruses, for spooky-fast startup, for an undead battery, for horror movie marathons, for no fear of crashes, for no phantom files, for no software nightmares, for a fun size, for no haunting hassles; the $249 laptop from Google for everyone.” This is the second time in a short while where Slayer has been used in a commercial. In September, ESPN used the band’s logo for comedic contrast for an ad featuring the seemingly nerdy SportsCenter commentator John Clayton, who wears a Slayer shirt while showcasing a ‘Reign in Blood’ poster in his “bedroom.” Still, the reigning champion of heavy metal commercials is the History Channel , when they used Suffocation ‘s ‘Bind Torture Kill’ to promote their ‘Dark Ages’ programming. What do you think of the use of Slayer’s music for a Google commercial? Is it funny? Does it work well? Is it a sellout move? Let us know your opinion in the comments section below.
