T-Pain has joined musical forces with Creative Designs International to launch the I Am T-Pain Mic. Inspired by the I Am T-Pain App, the plastic microphone enables you to sound just like the hip-hop hit-maker.

Record your bad-shower singing into this colorful toy and enhance it during playback with the "T-Pain effect." Designed for those who don't own a cell phone, the I am T-Pain Mic will be available for sale this summer.

Implications - Consumers are always interested in emulating celebrities that seem to idolize. Products such as this one that connects the buyer to the celebrity by means of imitation will only be beneficial for any company using this in an advertisement, campaign or product.
