    Default 1984 "Hammer Guy" had his own NES game?

    I was perusing this NES emulator site and found a game called Pesterminator: The Western Exterminator. Lo and behold, the star is the Hammer Guy from the '84 tour. Check out the links below to play the game, and see the cover:

I swear to God I had this one chick, this chick was poundin' on my door, she was kickin' and screamin' at my door 'til about 6:30 this morning. Finally, I just said, 'Fuck it!' and let her out of my room!" - David Lee Roth

    I had to fly to california a couple of years ago for work. Idon't travel a whole lot, flew into the san fran airport. on my way to santa clara on the freeway I was overjoyed to see the actual hammer guy on the side of the road. you wanna talk about geeking out, it was the actual hammer guy on a sign, I tried like hell to get a pic but the sun did not agree with my camera...it was the highlight of my trip.

    I travel to LA about every quarter and noticed the Hammer Guy on a billboard.

    I live in California and am originally from Phoenix & remember the Western man "Hammer Guy" when i was a little kid in Phoenix way b4 he was used for the 1984 tour.

    The Western trucks have a "Hammer Guy" statue on them and i see them from time to time.
    Years ago when i was a huge VH collector i always thought what if i stole one?

    Anyways here's a story i found,
    It's not too far from me.
