It didn't crash quite as religiously as Manchester City's #AskJesus Twitter campaign did, but sister club New York City FC's #AskLamps predictably didn't quite go as hoped. 

New signing Frank Lampard took over NYCFC's Twitter account, and the longtime Chelsea stalwart's nickname, "Lamps," was naturally the source of humour.

Frank Lampard is taking over @NYCFC right now for a quick Twitter Q&A. Ask anything you want with #AskLamps. Go.

#AskLamps do you prefer a screw or bayonet connection as an interface with bulbs. I know John Terry likes as good screw.
