Random Ridiculousness

One of our former “When the Checks Stop Coming In” victims Ed McMahon has a new gig:

Ed McMahon has an unexpected new job title: rapper. 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 tracksuit, 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. “When I retired, I was famous,” McMahon raps in the video. “I had money and glory/I bought a house for 6 mill/I thought nothing could touch me/Until my credit went south, and debt started to crunch me/Next thing I know, instead of playing gin rummy, I was scrambling just to make ends meet/It wasn’t funny.” After being joined by two scantily clad women, McMahon continues: “Got a bump from the media chumps, but that was temporary/Wife with bad credit was scary, so I got wise/I may have fallen, but I got back up/Now I’m back on the attack, like a ninja swinging nunchucks/I told the haters, ‘Go on, take a hike’/It’s my show now, and I can do what I like.”

Ed McMahon’s old shriveled up ass rapping says a lot. Hip hop is a revolution, even the old geezers are getting it in. SMH.

    All I have 2 say is this:

    Hip-Hop has become such a damn parody of itself. People r not laughing WITH some of these rappers… but AT them.

    Go on and stack your paper, Ed. I ain’t mad atcha.

    It is sad that after all his career successes he is broke. I hear his wife had a lot to do with it but even more I think this whole housing collapse put him on his ass. People shouldn’t have gambled their homes would be worth more in the future removing equity they couldn’t afford to spend.

    As for his rapping opportunity well at least he took it poor old man it was probably all he could do to offset his struggle. I hope this teaches everybody a lesson. Never spend what you don’t have in your hand and never take all you have and gamble it on the great what if it might leave you rapping at 85+ years old when you know you can’t.

    Ed McMahon stood up for Arsenio Hall and gave him mainstream respectibility and gravitas when Arsenio’s show was just starting up by appearing on his show and having a good time, and basically co-signing him.

    I will not diss Ed McMahon.

  • HoneyBrown

    This is extremely unfortunate. I’m not mad at him for doing what he can to get that mortgage note paid. Johnny Carson is spinning in his grave right about now. :-X
