Brazilian YouTuber Gabriel Salles has hilariously made a Pokemon Metallica mashup. Famously known for his viral videos mixing American bands with Brazilian songs and Portuguese lyrics, Salles’ focus this time is on thrash metal band Metallica. Because what’s funnier than watching the 2016 US Olympic Swim Team sing the Pokemon Theme? The answer is apparently Metallica.

The new mashup video has generated over 10 million views on YouTube and momentum doesn’t seem to be slowing down. And while Salles doesn’t necessarily do the best James Hetfield impression, it’s enough for you to suspend your disbelief and enjoy the viral awesomeness.

Some of the viral mogul’s other videos include nu-metal band Slipknot singing Ricky Martin’s “Living La Vida Loca” and Linkin Park singing “Amo Noite e Dia.” So if catching them wasn’t enough, watch the video below and headbang along.
