Paul Hogan is back on TV poking fun at wrestling

By Armando

Watch WWE Wrestling legend Hulk Hogan save the day once again in a strange yet fun new commercial created by advertising agency DDB & Tribal Worldwide Amsterdam for Dutch insurance company Centraal Beheer, the largest insurance company in the Netherlands. The Hulkster appears as himself in the commercial, which is the 60th in Beheer’s “Just Call Us”, a campaign that has been running for 30 years.

Appropriately titled “The Hulk”, the bizarre new TV spot shows a family enjoying the day and taking pictures at the pier when suddenly a thief snatches the mother’s bag. In comes Hogan, stopping the thief before he get away. He then pulls his punches, yet does the bad guy no harm by missing his target by a few inches and his signature wrestling moves not connecting, a sequence that seem to poke fun at professional wrestling’s dramatized athletic performance and world of make-believe.

Not exactly the comeback his fans are expecting. But its a light and fun commercial for Hogan, who was disgraced back in 2015 and has been absent from American wrestling for a couple of years.
