Murderface goes to Mexico for plastic surgery after he receives a dubious award. The rest of the guys, meanwhile, deal with the effects of aging and years of hard living.
After slaying planet Earth for so many years, it only makes sense that the Dethklok guys are getting a little up there in age and as a result everything else goes down. That’s right kids, as you get older your belly gets bigger(Nathan), you start losing your hair(Pickles), your teeth start to suck because of years of drinking coffee(Skwisgaar), or as in the case of Toki and Murderface your facial features start to go the way of Joan Rivers. And like Joan Rivers there’s only one way to fix it…plastic surgery.
After finding out that he’s broke Murderface decides to borrow money from Nathan so that he can fly to Mexico to get reconstructive facial surgery. Of course, dreams of grandeur and hot ladies are the goal here but once he wakes up the Dethklok bassist looks more the part of Dr. Doom from the Fantastic Four than he does a bad ass rock star as a result of being fitted with a metal mask which covers his face. As a result, Murderface decides to unveil his new look when Dethklok goes to play live at the “Brutalies” award show.
Once at the show, the entire band is there trying to do their best in taking the advice given to them by the press and making a bunch of cosmetic changes. Toki’s biggest thing is that his lips are too small due to years of eating lemons and as such goes the route of getting cosmetic surgery to make them look better. Nathan, gets a girdle, Pickles gets a terrible hair piece, and Skwisgaar gets his teeth bleached. Murderface does the crazy thing and actually keeps his mask on until he gets his award for ugliest member, and after he takes his mask off the crowd learns that he has totally earned it!
Nothing special about this week’s episode as everything seemed like standard fare. Every animated series on TV has done the make over deal, which isn’t to say that’s a bad thing as Metalocalypse certainly put its spin on it. However, when compared to how awesome last weeks episode was, “Dethvanity” was a bit of a let down. Having said that, Andy Richter controls the universe so that’s definitely a plus.
