Metallica poked fun at British critics who opposed singer James Hetfield’s love of hunting prior to the band’s headlining slot at the Glastonbury festival on Saturday by posting a video, in which they dressed up as bears, online.

Animal rights activists urged Glastonbury bosses to axe the group’s set over the “Enter Sandman” singer’s links to a new outdoorsman series – Hetfield, a longtime hunting fan, narrates the show.

Poking fun at the anti-Metallica critics, the group hired filmmaker Julien Temple to shoot a new video, entitled “Glastallica.”

In the film, the band members play bears tracking down wealthy statesmen as they prepare for a fox hunt.

The video was shown prior to the band’s set at Glastonbury.
