Ass Clowns Go Platinum?!

6/23/2007 4:02 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

ICPWhen word leaked this week that Insane Clown Posse -- the band Blender magazine named "Worst Band Ever" -- were beginning work on their second feature film, people worldwide asked the same question: "Who in the hell saw their FIRST movie?" Well, apparently, a lot.

Their first film, "Big Money Hustlas," just qualified platinum on DVD. Turns out these guys have 3 platinum and 5 gold awards to their credit -- and they're keeping all that money to themselves, via their own aptly-named Psychopathic Records label.

Maybe these jokers have figured out the same lesson that clowns like Paris, Lindsey and Britney have already learned ... that "Haterade" can get you paid!

Think about it..... Regardless of how they sound, or how good the movie was or was not.... Its still rather impressive for an Independently produced group to achieve this.

Until your DVD qualifies for platinum status, taking a dig at the Insane Clown Posse makes you look like the ass clown.

down with the clown    

ICP has never done any formal advertising, and they have been around for a long time... how many other bands or groups have been this successful with just word of mouth?!?! I can't think of any....Love ICP and all associated with psychopathic records!!!!!

This TMZ staff member is does not know what he/she is talking about.

"Maybe these jokers have figured out the same lesson that clowns like Paris, Lindsey and Britney have already learned ... that "Haterade" can get you paid!"

ICP is nothing like Paris, Lindsey or Brittany (The ones that pay your salary by giving you crotch shots, overdosing, and generally cannot take care of themselves because they were pampered their whole life.)

Perhaps you should do research on Joe Utsler and Joe Bruce, both of the paint faced men behind ICP. Look up there past from 1980's to 2007, they built their own empire.

No one that hates ICP buys their merchandise and music. Only people who like them buy their items and music.

100% wrong about the haterade...They are the complete opposite of your business marketing strategy. Stick to talking trash about Paris, Spears and Lohan, they are your bread winners. Perhaps the most untalented, ugly, useless human beings marketed on this planet.

I can't wait for America to fall into another despression, It will wipe out all the morons in this country. I work for an international corporation so I will always be living well. haha

All I can say is, their music isn't that good in my opinion (except maybe The Great Milenko), but regardless, you have to respect their hustle. Those guys don't even have to put out an album and they're still making millions off merchendising, the Gathering Of The Juggalos and all that. MMFCL!
