Please don't rap in commercials

You thought it died in the early '90s.

I mean after The Fresh Prince pimped Sprite and MC Hammer pushed some popcorn chicken, you thought it was the beginning of the end and you were right. Consumers were on "hip-hop" overload, with even the most un-hip-hop products like Barbie, Lego's and Chef Boyardee getting generic rhymes and breakdancing from suburban white kids.

I mean, the movie Kazaam alone should have been the nail in the coffin on that whole street smart, dress tough, white kid rapping thing, right?

Apparently that movement just took a Gatorade break to get everything straight and returned with what is probably the worse 60 seconds of rapping since any 60-second interval of Rodney Dangerfield's rap album.

Education Connection's rap commercial featuring the girl who "works for an hourly wage" and "went to high school, didn't do great" is probably the most cringe worthy thing on TV.

She seems to believe that when she "gets a degree, [she'll] make a bigger salary. Like $25,000 more a year. (Sorry to burst your bubble chica, but I make a little over one-fifth of what I made in college since getting my degree).

For the love of God online degree scam, have some respect! Follow the lead of ITT Tech or ECPI next time and show a guy working, who shocked everyone who knew his slacker ass by getting a college degree in just two years!

WARNING: Watching this might make you throw your laptop across the room + will waste 60 seconds on your life.
