Metallica Fan Builds Life-Size (Functioning) Lars Ulrich Toilet

This might just be the most metal throne in existence!

An incredibly dedicated Metallica fan and artist, has created a life-sized model of Lars Ulrich that doubles as a fully functioning toilet. Yes - toilet.

The Ulrich-based design features Metallica’s legendary stickman squatting (as in sitting on a drum stool), holding a pair of drum sticks and wearing a cut-off tee with his own name emblazoned in the iconic Metallica font. 

Check it out below!

Earlier this year, Midnight made headlines with a – yes, fully functioning – guitar using the skeleton bones of his deceased uncle Filip, who died in a car accident 20 years ago. 

While this may seem morbid in some cultures, in Midnight’s native Greece cremation is frowned upon, so his uncle had requested for his remains to be donated for educational purposes. As the college they’ve been residing in since had no furtherer need for them, Midnight filed extensive paperwork to have his uncle Filip’s bones returned to him, then attached a guitar neck, pickups, volume knobs, a jack, strings and electronics to create the playable instrument.

In an interview with MetalSucks, Midnight said: “I got the box of bones from Greece and didn’t know what to do at first. Bury them? Cremate them? Put them in the attic? All seemed like poor ways to memorialise someone who got me into heavy metal.”

The life-sized Lars Ulrich toilet will debut at Prince Midnight’s art show in the US on December 3rd, where he will also perform live playing his guitar made of bones. 

This year, Metallica celebrated 30 years of their monumental LP, commonly referred to as The Black Album. It’s one of the best-selling albums of all time and widely regarded as an all-time metal classic, but even celebrated masterpieces are open to critique! Check out the guys reading some scathing reviews of the album from when it was first released in 1991, below.
