Great moments in celebrity marketing

Yesterday, Laurence Simon wrote about the new Elvis Coffee. Coming on the heels of the McDonald's ads touting how they're now carrying Newman's Own Organics Blend Coffee, I immediately thought of another celebrity coffee brand that, as a non-coffee-drinker, I just KNOW would be a smash hit.

"Michael Jackson Coffee. Forget the cream -- this blend starts out black, but gradually lightens itself. Wait long enough, and it'll eventually turn into pure milk. You'll save a fortune on cream!

Keep out of reach of small children."

I am linking this to my own midly amusing coffee-related post of the week (mercifully NOT about Michael Jackson):
