Win the Hello Kitty Drum Kit That Mike Portnoy Played in Our Viral Video!
If you've seen our viral video of Mike Portnoy doing 'Name That Tune' on a Hello Kitty drum kit, we've got an amazing contest for you. We're giving away the actual kit that Portnoy played in the video!
With over 1.7 million views and counting, Mike Portnoy's 'Name That Tune' video has become the most watched clip in Loudwire history. Portnoy used his incredible skill to test the kit's durability, and it held up surprisingly well even while Slayer's "Raining Blood," Rush's "2112" and Metal Allegiance's "Let Darkness Fall" took Hello Kitty to its absolute breaking point.
Since posting the original Hello Kitty video, we got another big hit when we inserted Mike into the movie Whiplash, where his playing proceeded to tick off J.K. Simmons. Since the performance, Portnoy picked up his own Hello Kitty drum kit and has rocked it out onstage in concert. So, now's your chance to own a piece of metal history!
Mike Portnoy reveals his love for the Hello Kitty kit in the video above while explaining the rich history between Hello Kitty percussion and rock's all-time greatest drummers, who according to Portnoy have all played the brand at some point in their careers. Portnoy then signs the kit before your very eyes. Afterward, the kit was given a metal makeover by Portnoy and his Metal Allegiance bandmates.
