U Can't Touch Tea with MC Hammer


Florida has seen its history of hilarious marketing strategies. (Remember the Tampa Bay Bandits' million dollar give away...that was actually $50,000 every year for 20 years, starting in 20 years? The team folded after three years. Nobody got a dime.) But offering Brits the chance to have tea with dated ironic icon MC Hammer may be the best yet.

It's part of a new ploy from Pompano Beach-based Cash4Gold. And more than 1,600 UK residents have already entered their names, hoping to win the honor of tea time with Hammer--and a UK-based celebrity to be named later.

Just imagine all the questions you could come up with as you load little squares of sugar into your tasty black tea. The pants. The dance. That cool song with the Addams Family. Probably best if nobody mentions financial planning though.
