These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
YMMV: MC Hammer
Adaptation Displacement: The only reason the majority of music-lovers ever heard of Rick James' "Super Freak" was because of the lawsuit Rick James filed against MC Hammer for the use of the song's Epic Riff.
In the span of "2 Legit 2 Quit"'s six minutes, the words "too legit" are spoken a whopping 120 times, with the entire phrase "too legit to quit" appearing 57 times within that number. That's a certain recipe for Ear Worm whether you want the song to stick around in your mind or not.
Memetic Mutation: Stop! Hammertime. Over time, this meme went from being spoken to being seen, as Stop signs can still be seen to this day with "HAMMER TIME" stamped on there either as graffiti, as an embossing or as a bumper sticker.
Hardison: This was an IRS foreclosure. I got it cheap.
Eliot: IRS doesn't take toilets.
Hardison: They do when they're solid gold. Heard this used to be MC Hammer's place. I guess you can touch this, with a SWAT team and a federal warrant.
Sampled Up: "U Can't Touch This" sampled the main riff from "Super Freak" by Rick James. At least James got some of the moola.
Most of Hammer's songs relied on what could be... charitably... described as less than creative sampling choices. These included Prince's "When Doves Cry" for "Pray" and "Soft and Wet" for "She's Soft and Wet", The Chi-Lites' "Have You Seen Her?" for "Have You Seen Her?", The Jackson 5's "Dancing Machine" for "Dancin' Machine", Marvin Gaye's "Mercy Mercy Me (The Ecology)" for "Help the Children" (Ah-ha! You expected "Save the Children", didn't you?) and George Clinton's oft-sampled "Atomic Dog" for "Pumps and a Bump". No word on whether they got their own moola, though.
Signature Song: "U Can't Touch This," although "Too Legit" is fondly remembered by fans as well.
