This amusing Cash4Gold Super Bowl ad made a splash when it first aired.
Come on, it’s tough not to laugh when MC Hammer claims to be selling a medallion of himself wearing a medallion, or when Ed McMahon gently pats a golden toilet and says, “Goodbye old friend” in the most wistful of tones.
Unfortunately, the company that they were representing is being accused by former employees and blogs of being fiendish in the extreme.
There’s obviously something questionable about a company with the sales pitch, “send us your gold…we will melt it down and pay you later, we swear.”
But to trade on the soul of a dying Ed McMahon to loot the olds of their gold…that is reprehensible.
