Mastercard Heavy Metal Card

Mastercard is advertising what they’re calling the “Heavy Metal” card.

I wonder why they call it the Heavy Metal card? Does the APR weight users down like a piece of heavy metal might? Is dealing with the company so frustrating that it makes users want to bang their heads? Is there a bonus plan for customers who worship Satan?

But if they’re going to call it the Heavy Metal card, they should get heavy metal musicians to advertise the card in TV, radio and internet ads, and they should also sponsor a heavy metal concert series or festival, as these things would definitely make people remember that there is such a thing as a Heavy Metal Mastercard.
