Watch Mastodon's Hilarious PBR Promo Video

Brent Hinds: “I love PBR and all, but I didn’t sign up for this shit.”

Mastodon just wrapped up the first leg of their Emperor of Sand tour, which is sponsored by Pabst Blue Ribbon beer. With another round of dates scheduled for this fall, the band brushed up on their beer-shilling, product-placement skills. Watch the Atlanta outfit's hilarious attempts below.

The Office-style mockumentary centers around Andy Riggs, PBR's overeager music tour manager, whom the band naively allowed to tag along with them on the road. His aims? To get the band to "eat, drink and breathe nothing but PBR." His methods? Forcing the band to sit through hours of "label facing training" and pouring beer on Brent Hinds' cereal, among other tactics. Unsurprisingly, Mastodon aren't exactly thrilled: "I love PBR and all, but I didn't sign up for this shit," complains Hinds. (Actually, he did; Riggs has the contract to prove it.) By video's end, their shade has evolved into complex trolling schemes. Lest we spoil the plot, let's just say that Mastodon's revenge plan involves a staged green room break-in.
