    Presumably they also put a severed horse's head in the bed of ESP's CEO.

    If they're seriously upset about brands making knock-offs of their guitars, they're at least 30 years too late. That horse is out of the barn, moved to Cancun, built a whole new barn, and left that one too.
    C'mon son.

    I saw the whole video before they pulled it down. He comes across as a real cunt. They should fire that assclown ASAP.

    Awww man I wanna see it! I wanna laugh at the douchebag too! I hate it when removed videos are commented on or made newsworthy... Surely someone's still got it somewhere? This is the internet dammit! Nothing just goes away!

    It's hilarious how fast they pulled it down.

    They were probably all high fiving each other in the board room mere days before about their brilliant plan at making Gibson seem like an ultra macho/tough guy brand again.

    I assume they did an earlier version where he menacingly played with a Bowie Knife in a theatrical fashion while threatening other brands.

    But in the end they decided that dressing him up like a character from the Outsiders was tough enough.



    He picked up that jacket when the prop department of Sons of Anarchy was having a yard sale. Really meshes with the "play authentic" image.

    The only fight this "authentic tough guy" has ever won is yelling at some dude at Starbucks for spelling his name wrong on the cup.
