Rapping Hamburglar A Finalist For Big Mac Ad

Tamien Bain, who spent 12 years in jail after holding up a McDonald's in 1994, is now rapping to promote the fast food chain's signature sandwich. The 29-year-old's jingle landed him a spot as one of five finalists in the "Big Mac Chant-Off" contest.

The winner's song will air in a national McDonald's ad.
