Troy Sanders of Mastodon has appeared in a new advert for Orange guitar amps, according to NME.

Sanders stars as a cocky rock star whose (non-Orange) amps have all broken just before a show. In response, Orange sends a dog to transport the amp to Sanders so that he can successfully take to the stage before his loving audience. Fans have reacted positively to the advert though many have questioned why Sanders, who plays bass in Mastodon, is playing guitar in the clip. Scroll down the page to see the video online now.

Mastodon were last in the headlines when it was revealed that they are working on songs for the forthcoming "Monsters Inc" sequel. The US heavy metal band revealed that they will be writing one song for "Monsters University", due for release in Summer 2013, on their official Facebook page before quickly removing the update.

Monsters University is due to come out in June next year and will be a prequel, set 10 years before the original title. The film promises to investigate the relationship between Sulley (John Goodman) and Mike (Billy Crystal), and show viewers inside their life as they attend university.

Mastodon are also one of the confirmed acts for Download Festival 2013 alongside Iron Maiden, Slipknot and Rammstein.

    I liked it quite a lot actually, but I still don't get why he plays guitar in the clip, but he plays bass on Mastodon. Unfortunately me being confused at the end of the add for that made me forget what the add was for...
    I love Troy. I love Orange amps. But damn was that far from amusing. Its ok though, this ad wont change the fact that I still love both Troy and Orange amps.
    If they are questioning why hes playing a guitar as the article states, he does play guitar as well, and i did see him showing the others riffs from ghost of karelia, but thats all ive seen of him playing.
