ESPN Employs MC Hammer For Their Monday Night Football Ad Campaign

Friday, August 15, 2008


You may remember over the last few years that ESPN had started to use a new tagline for it's MNF commercials leading up to the games. The "Is It Monday Yet?" ads started popping up more frequently and for some reason, I've always seemed to enjoy them (especially the humming one). Well this year they've brought them back, but with 100% more 90s.

I'm combining two ads into one video here but the first one is all you need to worry about. It makes zero sense, but it includes a dream sequence starring THE Stanley Kirk Burrell, or as you know him....MC Hammer....



I've watched that clip about ten times now, and I still have no idea what it's about. But I think the lesson that we have learned though, is that anytime you use MC Hammer and a keytar in the same commercial....it's going to be a winner.

(P.S.- Here's a challenge.....Sing this five times, "We've got to pray. Praaaaaay. Pray....Praaaaay. We've got to pray just to make it today," and have it not be stuck in your head the rest of the day. Good luck.)

MC Hammer is such a fag...I'm not surprised they didn't squeeze Stuart Scott into the commercial.
