Tool‘s Justin Chancellor and Danny Carey are embracing the holiday spirit in a new commercial for the Dunlop USA Cry Baby Wah bass pedal.

The goofy clip finds Chancellor’s head CGI-ed onto a young boy who opens up a Christmas present to find the pedal and proceeds to rock out a metal version of the holiday classic “Carol of the Bells.” That’s when Santa, also played by Chancellor, opens the door.

“Aw, he loves it, lads!” Santa exclaims to his elves, played by — you guessed it — Chancellor again, along with Carey.

The ad then ends with a series of fake proclamations and disclaimers, including “Tool totally endorsed this ad as a band. They actually did not, so don’t tell them. They are mysterious.” You can watch the ad now streaming on YouTube.

Chancellor and Carey will be back together on the live stage for Tool’s upcoming 2022 tour, kicking off in January.
