I think this marketing campaign would get you jail time in the U.S. I don't think this is a good idea even though this rapper got international press attention.

What's your view on this marketing idea.

Rapper hits a bum note as fake cash fools stores (http://news.scotsman.com/edinburgh.cfm?id=1581532006) - IT must have seemed like a marketing idea bang on the money - putting a rapper's face on fake 10 notes to plug his new single.

But Glasgow artist Hydro could be in hot water with police after shopkeepers in Edinburgh accepted some of the dummy money over the counter, thinking it was real.

The notes were handed out in Princes Street and Leith over the weekend ahead of the release of All Y'All on Monday.

Police are looking into whether it was an offence to print them while Hydro, and his record company Underdogg Productions, have denied any knowledge of the marketing campaign.
