In yet another sign of the cash-strapped times, the late night 1-800 company, Cash for Gold, has cashed in a lot of gold to buy one of the last Super Bowl spots. For those usually in bed by 10pm, Cash for Gold allows people to mail in their gold jewelry in exchange for quick cash. Sort of like a televised pawn shop!
Ed “Dude, Where’s My House” McMahon and MC “Okay, You Can Touch This” Hammer, both of whom are notorious for their recent financial downfalls, will star in the ad entitled “One Up.” According to USA Today, the spot will be well produced (unlike Cash for Gold’s current work) and will feature the Hammerman and Ed sending in items”that get more outrageous as the ad goes on.”
Personally, I think Mr. T would have been a good choice for a Cash for Gold spokesperson. He could probably get at least $50 for all that sweet 80’s bling hanging off his neck!
