Is this a sign of the times?

Ed McMahon and MC Hammer shilling for a glorified online pawnshop in a Super-Bowl commercial? Is this how bad things have become in general? Or is this just a sign of how low they have fallen? Someone please explain.


  1. They showed it in India?

    I was quite amazed by that ad. Asking for gold is scraping the bottom of the barrel, eh?

  2. Umm..this is the age of the internet, y'know. They definitely did not show this ad in India. Nobody here gives a damn about Ed McMahon (MC Hammer maybe a few people remember from the early days of MTV). I just ended up checking out a few of the Super Bowl ads because they're supposed to be the pinnacle of American advertising or whatever.
    It must be said - there's very little subtlety in American advertising.

  3. Yeah American ads are quite moronic.
