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.  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 get to see Clay in his Hammer Pants?

  1. This is one Tour I missed seeing the show – I was so disappointed as I was planning on going to the Toronto show but it just didn't work out. I loved all of the videos and watched many of them. The one put up here was a lot of fun. Clay and Ruben are a truly funny pair.
    It would be great to see them do something like this again! Thank you!

  2. I busted out laughing! Watching this video brings back memories of this tour. Thank you, CANN! Love the history of the hammer pants, the pics and the video!

  3. Clay and those Hammer pants were just too much. We laughed until our stomachs hurt during that part of the concert. Clay, Ruben & the girls performed a terrific concert. Thanks for the video reminder.

  4. NO.I so wished I could have gone. Clay and Ruben are so Wonderful together. Please do something for us SOON. The two of you are Great. Also loved the girls as always. Wishing Wishing?? HUGS
