There’s a new commercial for Monday Night Football on ESPN with MC Hammer, and I sure do get a kick out of it. I’ve discussed in other posts the usage of MC Hammer’s songs in commercials, but this one’s different. For one thing, MC Hammer actually appears as himself. For another, well, I won’t ruin it, but just listen to what’s said just before the dude wakes up. I just think this commercial’s great because who hasn’t had a totally weird dream that gets weirder when their alarm goes off, and the sound of their alarm is incorporated into their dream? I know I have.
Anywho, I get a kick out of it. So here it is, for your viewing pleasure (there is a second commercial after it that’s also pretty amusing, but it doesn’t have MC Hammer in it, so nuts to them):
I mean, I don’t even care about sports and this commercial almost makes me want to watch Monday Night Football. Almost.
