I am GUESSING that any potential ROI would accrue so slowly as to make the $1.5M price tag just a smidge on the pricey side. However, perhaps somebody like Mark Cuban doesn't want to pay royalties for playing "Cotton Eye Joe" anymore, and the obvious alternative of simply not playing the song won't come to them until after they've cut the cheque. ;-)
Me, I would rather have sprung for some shares of David Bowie back when HE was selling.
Forgive me for just posting a video, but this is about the funniest thing I've seen in quite a while (includes a brief cameo from the greatest internet-famed singer of all time). Who Says Hip-Hop Is Dead?
