Watch Metallica's Lars Ulrich mock Kirk Hammett for falling on stage

ABC/Randy HolmesMetallica's show in Sioux Falls, South Dakota earlier this week had a briefly scary moment when guitarist Kirk Hammett fell on stage. Luckily, Hammett quickly recovered and resumed playing, which allowed his band mate Lars Ulrich to comfortably mock him.

On his Instagram, Ulrich posted a video of Hammett's tumble, followed by a clip of the drummer imitating the fall in front of him.

"Careful in Sioux FALLS (geddit!?)," Ulrich wrote in the caption. Insert "waka wakas" here.

During a show in Amsterdam last year, frontman James Hetfield had a similar fall on stage. Fortunately, his fall didn't lead to anything serious, either.

Metallica is currently on tour in continued support of the band's latest album, 2016's Self-Destruct.
