When you're too legit to quit or just trying to heeeey-ail a sexy lady, consider harem pants. The take away from last night's American Music Awards was exactly that as Korean internet sensation Psy and nineties throw back MC Hammer took the stage in what can only be described as an explosion of sartorial awesome. Hammer: wearing tuxedo harem pants. Psy: wearing black harem pants paired with sparkly jacket in shoes. Both: Incredible. Check out the video after the jump as well as an up-close peek at both looks for your outfit inspiration needs.

Now to the video. For the record, Heidi Klum ain't got anything on the Hammer.
