Metallica give Rob Trujillo a messy surprise for his birthday

Rob Trujillo

Just because you're playing a show with Metallica doesn't mean you don't get to celebrate your birthday. Following the band's show in Charlotte, North Carolina, bassist Rob Trujillo dashed offstage and only to be met with a face and body full of silly string.

Staggering back on to the stage as James Hetfield, Kirk Hammett and Lars Ulrich (in a very fetching robe) cover the birthday bassist in umpteen cans of silly string, the capacity crowd belt out Happy Birthday to Rob as he stands with arms aloft, embracing the sheer amount of foam on him.

You can watch the video below on Metallica's Twitter.
