Metallica recently played a concert in Sydney surrounded by hundreds of very metal black balloons, for some reason. During “Seek And Destroy,” guitarist Kirk Hammett—who was probably just daydreaming about riding his horses and having a nice beet salad later—kicked several of said balloons into the crowd. Unfortunately, one of them had a small child behind it. Here’s a fan-made video courtesy of LiveLeak.com; look for the child in yellow sweatpants and large protective headphones at bottom right, then stay tuned for the 0:23 mark. Good thing Kirk Hammett isn’t running for mayor of Winnipeg. [Gawker]
