The Incredible Hulk as Pitchman

Considering the Incredible Hulk is so, well, maladjusted, you'd think he wouldn't be the first choice for a commercial product endorser.  However, you would be wrong.  Although perhaps not in the same tier as Superman and Batman when it comes to commercial appearances, he's had his share of product plugging.

Here he is for an inflatable RC-controlled figure featuring his likeness.

And also for Kid Power sneakers.

The Hulkster seems especially favored in countries other than the US.  Here he is in a strange Spanish-language commercial for a cell phone company.  That is none other than the great Lou Ferrigno reprising the role that made him famous.  If anyone can tell me what country this aired in, please let me know in the comments section.

Here is a commercial for a Dutch-made candy.  Ironically, the punchline of this commercial has come true to life in the Hulk's original medium of comic books.  Comic geeks out there know what I mean.

Here's Lou again in a Canadian commercial for financial services company AGF.  Please forgive the long intro to this clip.

Finally, here's the Hulk in...oh sorry, wrong Hulk!
