Check Out This Toilet Made To Look Like LARS ULRICH From METALLICA

According to the creator, the Lars Ulrich toilet will be relocated "for public use" to the Tampa, Florida, music venue Brass Mug on December 3.

You really need to take a moment to check out this toilet fashioned in the likeness of METALLICA drummer Lars Ulrich as he was in the 80’s.

The creator of this glorious shitter is none other than Prince Midnight, the Florida metalhead who is known for apparently making a guitar out of the skeleton of his dead uncle.

Prince Midnight, who is also a metal musician in his own regard, releasing his own self-titled EP in 2021, unveiled the Lars Ulrich toilet is part of his Hellmouth Plumbing Supply company, a boutique bathroom outfitter he started with toilet seat lids that showcase images of classic heavy metal album covers.

Prince Midnight tells Loudwire of the METALLICA drummer toilet: “Make no mistake, this is not me taking a jab at Lars. This is my way, albeit unconventional, to honor Lars Ulrich and Metallica. I could have painted a picture or made a traditional sculpture, but no one would have even noticed, and really, that’s not the kind of art and performance I do. The first band I ever loved was Metallica, the first record I became obsessed with, the first music I ever dove into, the concert I ever attended.”

Midnight fashioned the toilet using “a ton of natural clay from the art store to sculpt the body and legs,” he explains. “I used alginate to mold and cast my own hands and feet in resin. I saved the facial sculpt for last, using photos of Lars from the ’80s. Then, like the hands and feet, I made a mold and cast it in resin. I ran steel rebar through the whole thing with fiberglass batting. My backyard has essentially been an auto body shop for the last couple of months.”

The metalhead designer adds that “some might find the concept of making this toilet to be a work of absurdism, or even feel offended by the notion that it’s being presented as a work of fine art, but that’s how every creative is treated when exploring new creative spaces.”

As for your chances of being able to use the fully functioning Lars Ulrich toilet for yourself? According to Midnight, the shitter will be relocated “for public use” to the Tampa, Florida music venue Brass Mug on December 3.
