It Came From YouTube: Lanny Poffo loves to ride his Gazelle until he’s all sweaty…

TONY: “Have you ever heard of Lanny Poffo?”

TONY’S HOT FRIEND: “OH! Wasn’t he The Genius?”.

Pffft! What?!!

Stop! Stop the commercial!

Wait just a cotton-pickin’ minute, here!

I need to address this.

Crappers; if you walk up to any hot woman (or.. just about any woman; really) and you ask her if she know who Lanny Poffo is; and she replies in the affirmative with enthusiasm as the woman up there does, then you need to pinch yourself because you are very likely dreaming.

The more likely response you’re going to get is “No, I have no idea who that is”.

(Or, in my case; “Get away from me! I have mace and I’m not afraid to use it!”).

You go on to explain “He was The Genius in the WWF”.

and she’ll counter with “The who in the what, now?”.

Anywhoo, fellow Crapper (yes, we’re proud to say he is in fact one of us!) Lanny Poffo shills for The Gazelle and tells us what a fine product it is and how it helped him get back into shape (and hey; to his credit he looks to be in outstanding shape for his age- or any age, really).

He even plays pool, just like his brother!

    I always hate making fun of Lanny cause he always seems so likable but I thought WCW did the best job of making him disappear.

    • "The Big Cheese" Paul Kraft says:

      Lanny is the only good thing about the infomercial. Mostly I posted it for the stupid exchange between Tony and the woman at the beginning. :)

  2. Ezenwa says:

    Lanny definitely does seem like a likable guy. Smart, definitely. Saw a sit down interview with him. Good stuff.

  3. Doc Jeffries says:

    Lanny Poffo is one of the classiest people I have ever met in the world of professional wrestling.

    He doesn’t complain about Vince McMahon not taking care of him after WWE…he was smart and he saved his money. He is not bitter about his wrestling career like many of the superstars of the past today who rant and rave on shoot interviews on a daily basis.

    He’s a genuinely nice man who would give you the shirt off his back if you needed it.

    ….and remember….he beat Hulk Hogan on NBC. Not many people can even claim they beat or even wrestled Hogan even on a house show. Lanny got the win on national tv. Hogan doesn’t do that for just anybody.

  4. Nottingham's 'Mr Sex' says:

    If Lanny had mentioned the Gazelle helped him to still do that trick he allegedly used to do in the dressing room, Tony Little would own three entire continents by now.
