It Came From YouTube: Hulk Hogan MTV “The Big Show” commercial from 1989

6 Submitted by on Wed, 07 August 2013, 00:00

This is a 1989 commercial for an MTV show called “The Big Show” (and yes, I’m told that it was in fact “a big bad show, tonight, y’all”).

See, back then in the stone age MTV used to air programs about music and show music videos, kids.

There was some contest to win a “date” (ooo-la-la!) with Hulk Hogan to the premier of No Holds Barred.

Would I have to listen to him ramble about how great he was for him to pick up the tab for dinner and the limo ride?

Staring at that chroma-keyed rapidly-changing wild patterned background makes me want to puke- just like Hulk Hogan’s promos, coincidently…

    I remember this! Even when I was eight, it seemed strange to me that “A Date with Hulk Hogan” was considered a prize.

    No disrespect meant to the Hulkster.

      I actually wouldn’t mind a dinner with Hulk- the food would probably be good and I imagine I could get some interesting stories out of him.

      Just as long as he doesn’t try to take me home for Brooke. Ewww..

        Entertaining stories sure, true stories, not so much.

        But hey, as the old saying goes, don’t let the truth get in the way of a good story.
