Christmas Presents You’d Re-Gift To Lars Ulrich

It’s December 26th which means two things: 1. It’s Lars Ulrich’s birthday and 2. Christmas is over and now’s the time to decide whether to keep, exchange/return or re-gift presents you received on the 25th. For fun and a few laughs, we decided to honor Lars’ birthday by naming items we’d re-gift to him and the reasons why. Enjoy!


Beer Mugs

Considering Lars was recently the celebrity face for two different Danish beers, we think he’d really enjoy receiving some cool beers mugs.


iTunes Gift Card

Why would you re-gift an iTunes gift card to Lars? It can be used on their streaming service. Call it a hunch, but we think he’d be able to get behind paying a reasonable monthly fee to have access to a ridiculous amount of music. Perhaps something happened in the past that would make us think of that.


Like an impatient mother reminding her 30-something daughter that her clock is ticking, we’d re-gift a calendar to subtly remind Lars and the rest of Metallica that September 12, 2016 will mark eight years since the band released Death Magnetic. Two words, gentlemen: Tick…tock.
