Ed McMahon Raps For FreeCreditReport.Com
If you look up the word "shill" in your Funk & Wagnalls, you will see Ed McMahon`s mug shot.
McMahon was born to be a second banana, his only discernable talent is to agree with every utterance out of the mouth of Johnny Carson. McMahon may not have a nose for comedy, but he has the perfect brown nose to be a commercial spokesperson.
McMahon has enjoyed a very successful second career shilling for every product under the sun. I don`t think McMahon would have any qualms about doing commercials touting North Korea as a great travel destination.
I could care less if McMahon`s mansion is foreclosed, he belongs in a retirement home anyway. In an attempt to save his house McMahon has humiliated himself by shilling for FreeCreditReport.Com.
"The 85-year-old former `Tonight Show` sidekick will star in two viral rap videos for FreeCreditReport.com, a financial Web site owned by credit bureau Experian. The videos feature McMahon wearing a track suit, being chauffeured around Los Angeles in a Cadillac Escalade golf cart and waxing lyrical about his very public financial troubles.
`I knew I could sing the blues, but I didn`t know I could rap,` McMahon said Wednesday."
You can`t fool.
McMahon was never a serious artist and he doesn`t deserve any respect, but it`s still sad to see an old coot humiliate himself for filthy lucre. McMahon is too stupid to have a sense of irony -- William Shatner he`s not.
