Ahem.

I would like to apologize in advance for the lovely thread.


Somewhere between 1992-1995, I would say, I remember a commercial of Hulk Hogan advertising a certain pair of shoes. Inside the sole there was a drawer-like compartment in which one was supposed to keep small pieces of meat such as beef jerky or ham. This meat would be kept warm while they walked.

I have asked roughly twenty people if they remember this product, none of them do. Someone suggested that due to the outrageousness of the product, it's possible that I am remembering a spoof commercial from Saturday Night Live. That is most definitely a possibility. But I remember seeing this commercial on more than one occasion. Certainly my seven-year-old self couldn't have been having reoccurring dreams of Hulk Hogan shoes. Help me, Internet.

Here is a picture of what I vaguely remember it to look like:

I think you just ate a lot of paint chips when you were a kid. Either that or saw some comedy sketch show. Terry Hogan would never endorse a product like that.

No, but I do seem to remember a commercial where the Ultimate Warrior was selling shorts with an extra pocket in the crotch to keep your fried chicken warm......

I had shoes with little pockets in them as a kid, but I usually put a quarter or something in there, not meat.

They also weren't Hulk Hogan shoes.

There WERE Hulk Hogan vitamins, but my mom would never buy those.

Looks like you dropped acid, watched some TV, and assimilated a Macho Man Randy Savage Slim Jim commercial into a shoe commercial. Either that or you're the next incarnation of Leonardo DaVinci. Enjoy your newfound fortune and fame.

I'd think keeping beef jerky near your crotch would be alot more effective in warming it.


Also, who the gently caress eats warm beef jerky?

I had those shoes!
They were white with some yellow stripes, I used to wear them all the time and roam the streets, slyly grabbing bits of jerky from my feet mid-stride.

Could have been a comedy skit. It just doesn't make sense at all.

"My shoes!"

no... but you gotta patent that quick! That product is borderline insane/genius. Maybe you can add some of those roller things on the bottom that kids like and hook it up to a heat coil in the compartment to make your meat medium rare while you're on the go?

Let me tell you something about stepping in someone else's cornflakes... it's a weird way to eat cornflakes

There are plenty of places that showcase the stupid products that have come from professional wrestling. I promise you if this had ever existed, it would be the centerpiece of every single one of them.

So, no... although if someone does patent this, make sure you use "hide the salami" somewhere in your advertising.

Wow, that's awesome! I really hope that these shoes somehow exist. If not, someone should carve up a pair of shoes to add a meat compartment and maybe paste on a Hulk head. Bonus points for red and yellow color scheme.

It was not Hulk Hogan. It was a comedian whose name escapes me. He kinda looked like a thin David Crosby. But it was a fake commercial possibly on SNL of "The Broiler." It uses the heat of your feet to cook the meat, at least that was the tagline.

The hulkster does have a grill, maybe that's where the meat comes in. And at some point or another, there must've been endorsed sneakers. 'tis yer brain that's cross wired OP.

This sounds vaguely like something that Comedy Central aired many moons ago.

I alone can see through the media bias.

I'm also stupid on a scale that can only be measured in Reddits.

That's ok man, keep searching. I couldn't convince anyone that The Noozles existed for like ten years before I found it on a old cartoons web page. I didn't remember the title and the premise sounds so hosed up nobody would believe I wasn't imagining it.

For reference: It's about refugee magical koalas from an evil Outback dimension (Koala-Wala Land) with (apparently) a police state and a wallaby gestapo. On Earth, in exile or whatever, they stay with this kid, spending most of their time as stuffed animals, becoming their real animate selves again only when 'noozled', or Nose-nuzzled. What a mindfuck of a series for a kid to watch. Actually, I just checked wikipedia for my facts and it appears this show was originally Japanese, which I didn't know but explains A LOT.

haha, I actually had to look this up on wiki because I was sure you were talking out your arse. The Koala in it was actually named Brinky. I cannot work out if Blinky Bill ripped off Brinky or if it was the other way round.

Edit: Blinky Bill was created in 1934 so I think I know who was created first.

Meanwhile, Until I am eating warmed foot meat I dont beleive in these shoes.
