When the hell did this happen?

I'm what you would call a 'night owl' and I've NEVER seen the infomercial for this.

Is this considered 'slumming' or just Hogan being Hogan?

I believe I've heard Hogan tell the story that he was approached to endorse the product that later become the George Foreman grill. If I recall correctly from his telling of the story, he was all for it, but wanted to check with his lawyers first. When his lawyers contacted the manufacturers, they had already gone with George Foreman for endorsement.

So this is just Hulk getting his revenge by endorsing a knock-off.

Read it and weep, fella

The story I heard was that the grill people had the grill and some kind of blender/food processor/smoothie maker to hawk. They called Hogan's agent and George Foreman's agent, but Foreman's agent either called back first, or Hogan's agent somehow missed the call all together, so George got the grill and Hogan ended up with the blender. The blender sucked and went the way of the dodo, and the grill took over the universe.

He also gave Andre an early model of the grill, and the gril's unique fat draining method helped Andre lose 300 pounds, leaving him a slim trim 800lbs when Hulk bodyslammed him at WM3.

And if the grill had only been developed sooner, Andre would have continued his weight loss and wouldn't have had a fatal heart attack the very next day.

The related video that actually has Hogan in it is much better. Especially because it has a ROCKIN' theme that ends with "Hulk Hogan's Ultimate Griiiiillll- Brother!"

for some reason I like to think that the use of the word "Ultimate" in the title is a dig at the Warrior somehow.

Hmmm. Those infomercials made me hungry.

Godspeed, men of the 2nd Bn, 127th Infantry, 32d "Red Arrow" Brigade, Wisconsin Army National Guard! Victory in Iraq!

Between this and Pastamania, ol' Hulk doesn't exactly have the best track record in food endorsements, eh?

I rarely buy labels, and "celebrity endorsements" mean about as much to me the Russian Ruble, but I assure you, I wouldn't buy a Hulk Hogan grill...even if it were superior to a Foreman apparatus.

Okay, I'll be honest. This looks better than the mid-range Foreman grill I was given for Christmas a few years ago and use regularly. That said, the Hogan endorsement kinda makes me not want it. It's kinda like a real life Krusty the Clown endorsement... or if it were the Michael Scott Grill.

Pastamania, however, I would've given a try, brother!

I think the Hulk Hogan grills ended up being recalled after a few of them were reported to spontaneously burst into flame.

They used to show the infomercials for these over here and the jingle will stay with me until the day I die. "It's one of a kind, it's like no other. It's Hulk Hogan's Ultimate!"

I don't know how true this is. Think back to every Raw and Smackdown over the past month. Notice how Greyhound, Stacker 2 and Rockstar Games (GTA 3, Max Payne) make up about 75% of the non-WWE, non-Network commercials?
