Metal heads Brady Tulk and Johnny Zero became internet famous for their series Sock Puppet Parody, a YouTube program that covered some of the genre’s most iconic and cutting-edge songs with (you guessed it) sock puppets! Their most celebrated efforts include Pantera’s Walk, Slipknot’s Wait and Bleed, Slayer’s Raining Blood, and White Zombie’s More Human than Human. While metal is obviously their primary love, they’ve branched out, covering Straight Outta Compton by N.W.A. and Radiohead’s 90’s anthem Creep.

But of all their videos, the one that feels most appropriate is Metallica’s Master of Puppets; because, you know—puppets! The song also comes from an era before Metallica became MTV darlings, so an official video for Master of Puppets was never created. It all makes this Sock Puppet Parody practically perfect. Have a watch—and play it loud!
About Sock Puppet Parody:
Brady Tulk leads the Sock Puppet Parody production as the director. He has a never ending supply of motivation and puns, both of which are important to carry the team. However, the proportion of his attentiveness is correlated with his current state of imagination: the more wrapped up in an idea, the less he is able to listen. Luckily, he compensates with quick wit and ingenuity. Brady pushes the boundaries of fabric and paves the way for a second to none sock puppet show with literally a shoestring budget.
Avid sock enthusiast Johnny Zero is producer and co-creator of Sock Puppet Parody. While Johnny is the oldest member of the crew, he is often confused for the youngest due to his tenacious attitude and limitless energy. When he isn’t complaining about the youngsters on the crew, he is being one himself.
And if this parody of Master of Puppets has given you a hankering to hear the original, enjoy the video below of Metallica performing the song live in Seattle back in 1989 below. God damn, this song is good!
