Hulk Hogan's Humiliation.

Hulk Hogan has been having a rough time lately. He has gone through a well publicized divorce, his son was involved in an automobile accident that left his friend paralyzed, his attempt at showing up Vince McMahon failed, he chemically burned his hair off, and now he claims to be humiliated by a Post cereal commercial. Here is the commercial:

Hogan seems to be a little lawsuit happy lately. In addition to Post he is also suing Wells Fargo, claiming that he was under-insured because they never told him he should have had more insurance because of the risks involved with insuring teenage drivers. WHAT?? His son was involved in what is called drift racing and had been ticketed several times for speeding. Hogan's insurance only paid $250,000, which was all the coverage that he had paid for. He is claiming that Wells Fargo put his $30 million fortune in jeopardy. As I recall during his divorce Hogan was accused of hiding assets. At that time his wealth was estimated at $9.5 million. Where did the rest of the money come from? Hogan, you got some 'splainin' to do.

As for the Post commercial, he may have a point as far as the likeness goes. There are rules about using a persons image and I agree that Post does owe him a little money. But as to his claim that he was humiliated by that commercial, poppycock!! (How many times to you see that word any more?) How can someone claim humiliation from a cartoon image when he did this?

To quote Stan Lee, "'Nuff said."

I dunno that commercial could fall under parody, and he wouldn't get squat, but I'm no lawyer.
