Now that was crazy. The Emmys are done and dusted for another year, and there were more than enough trophies changing hands, talking points and gags to keep viewers engaged. 

But one unexpected moment really caught the attention of folks back home. A Capital One commercial aired during the Emmys broadcast which featured Prince's ‘80s classic "Let's Go Crazy". Wait, what...woah?!

During his lifetime, the Purple One was typically reluctant to sync his works in commercial campaigns. Any campaigns. For much of his career, even the Internet was out. Surely the late legend wouldn't have been pumped about an ad for a credit card? Twitter responded accordingly. Check out some of the reaction below.
