Former MOTÖRHEAD and current SCORPIONS drummer Mikkey Dee is now appearing in a series of commercials for Volvo.

The three commercials featuring Mikkey Dee are promoting the Swedish vehicle company’s new line of electric trucks and were all filmed in the SCORPIONS drummer’s hometown of Gothenburg, Sweden.

One commercial, which was shot at the city’s Ullevi Stadium, features Dee performing what Volvo is calling “possibly the highest-ever drum solo in the history of heavy metal.”

“The Volvo electric trucks are just as flexible as their diesel equivalents and can be built for virtually any task,” reads the official description. “And the absence of noise and emissions makes them perfect for nighttime assignments – like the possibly highest-ever drum solo in the history of heavy metal.”

Mikkey Dee is a legendary drummer who has sat behind the drum kit for SCORPIONS since 2016. Prior to that he played with MOTÖRHEAD from 1991 until the iconic band’s end in December 2015, and KING DIAMOND from 1985 until 1989.
