The ads that play late at night on cable television have gotten an upgrade for the Super Bowl. Ed McMahon and MC Hammer team up for a surprisingly funny, self aware and poignant commercial. Both men have gone bankrupt in the past and use this chance to poke gentle fun at themselves and the company they're representing. No doubt a few people will wonder if this is real or satiric when Sunday rolls around and MC Hammer tries to hawk his golden parachute pants.
