Mastodon‘s Brann Dailor returns to the time of the mastodon in a commercial for his signature snare drum with the company Tama Drums.

The ad features Dailor playing a caveman doing his best to practice his primitive drumming skills using bones and tree stumps. Suddenly, an alien appears and gifts prehistoric Dailor with the Tama “Brann’s Bronze” snare, along with a message from the future from Mastodon bassist/vocalist Troy Sanders.
