In Honor Of Jeff Hanneman, Here’s Google’s Slayer CommercialBy: Chris Crum - May 3, 2013
Slayer guitarist Jeff Hanneman passed away on Thursday at the age of 49. Fans around the web are expressing their grief, sharing memories, and of course, listening to Slayer.
With that, it seemed like a fine time to reflect on this ad Google released last October for Chromebooks, which makes use of Slayer’s “Raining Blood”.
The ad was obviously Halloween-themed, and says: “For little devils. For scaring off viruses. For spooky-fast startup. For 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.”
Probably not what the band had in mind when they wrote the song, but it shows just how far Slayer’s influence really does go.
