Apparently I’m late to the party, since the Youtube tags say this commercial is from the Superbowl. However, I saw this shit for the first time today and nearly fell out my chair.
It’s funny as hell but almost sad, because we all know Ed McMahon’s money is funny. He’s like 90 or something, it sucks that he’s struggling financially when he should be enjoying retirement. Especially since he’s had a pretty solid career as a television personality.
And let’s not even get on MC Hammer. When he was a “famous rap star” as noted in the commercial, he had a huge reputation for ballin’ out, making it rain, or whatever the 80s equivalent term is for being hood rich.
But hey, at least they’re making dough doing these Cash 4 Gold commercials. They’re not only spokespeople, they’re Cash 4 Gold customers.
Now that I think of it, hood rich people were onto something. Keep the cash in your mattress, or buy jewelry. If you invested in stocks it means shit now, but if you have a whole bunch of gold, diamonds, and platinum, you have a little bit of wealth.
*Off to search my jewelry box for miscellaneous gold pieces to cash in*
