Clay Aiken -An Exaggerated Costume

Back in the late 80s and early 90s, I remember the name MC Hammer.  I don’t remember ever watching him on TV and I certainly never went to one of his shows.  So, when Clay Aiken came out on the stage during the Timeless Tour, sporting a pair of Hammer Pants, I thought he was wearing an exaggerated costume.  SHOWS HOW MUCH I KNOW!!  I found the following on the Internet today.  I wonder if there is a line of people ready to buy these!

…fit around the thighs that slims toward the ankles and waist, these pants capture MC’s original multi-million dollar look – you’ll feel as cool as the man himself!

WAIT!  Where is the flamboyant belt with chains?  That is a “must have” for the MC Hammer look!

MC Hammer, himself, says of this style:

“You can make a fashion statement. You can move in ’em. You can dance in ’em. … It accentuates the movement, and it gives you freedom of movement. It’s a slight delay. You move, and then the pants move, so it brings a nice little flair.”

“From your heart, you wear them, how you feel today. If it’s a sunshiny day and you have a certain pair that goes with the sunshine, and you want to put some bright colors with them, then you do that.”

“Whether they are ivory, slick black, or gold lame, there is only one person I want to see wearing Hammer Pants…..Clay Aiken really looked cute! 

I think you will have fun watching this great video from Reno Nevada…


Clay and Ruben seem to be having a great time!

Did you see Clay in his Hammer Pants?
