Megadeth's Dave Mustaine Teams Up With Kenny G
The commercial features Mustaine narrating the story of a young metal fan named Keith preparing for a job interview; in need of something to psyche him up for the session, he heads to Megadeth Wearhouse to pick up the band's new album, "Super Collider."
"A few days before Christmas I purchased a gift certificate from the Men's Warehouse in Salt Lake City, Utah as a gift for our awesome tour manager Jim Carroccio," wrote Mustaine on December 29. "You know the Men's Warehouse…the old geezer with the voice that sound like he has chain-smoked since he was a fetus; the one that espouses, "I absolutely guarantee you're gonna like the way you look," or some manure like that, right?
"Well, I was talking to Jim today and wondering why he didn't say anything (I think we all wonder sometimes when our loved ones or friends get gifts if they actually like them) and it turns out that they decided to hold my order, otherwise called by them as "pending," and told no one. For almost 9 days now I have been waiting for delivery of this gift certificate, and I wouldn't say anything because it IS the holidays, but these salesmen promised that they would GUARANTEE a two-day delivery of the certificate to Jim (it seems they throw this word GUARANTEE around quite a lot).
"So, we called and asked what happened and they have no explanation whatsoever, they didn't care, and when we asked if they were going to do anything to remedy this, they made no effort whatsoever for this mix-up…although they did promise me the same GUARANTEE that they gave me when I bought it; that is that they will send it "two-day delivery," but I already was promised this. Maybe they mean 12 day delivery. More from Dave and the video here.
