    Default 575 pound "Heart Attack Grill" spokesman dies at the age of 29

    shocking, he appeared to be the picture of health,

    a shame tho that someone has to die so young, but also a shame that there is this promotion of gluttony attached to the situation, poor guy

    .

    PHOENIX — A 575-pound man who gained a measure of fame as spokesman for the Heart Attack Grill — a Phoenix-area restaurant that unabashedly touts its unhealthy, high-calorie menu — has died.

    Friends of 29-year-old Blair River say he died Tuesday, possibly from contracting pneumonia after a bout with the flu.

    Basso said River was a creative genius who had been planning to take part in the shooting of a promotional spot called, "Heart Attack Grill: The Musical."
    "Cynical people might think this (River's death) is funny," Basso said. "But people who knew him are crying their eyes out. There is a lot of mourning going on around here. You couldn't have found a better person."

    The 6-foot-8 River was an Arizona state high school heavyweight wrestling champion in 1999 and played football at Mesa Community College.

    She was warned. She was given an explanation. Nevertheless, she persisted.

    Glad you changed the thread title, was wondering what a 575 oound man looked like.


    Anyway, sad story...

    Sure, they're crying now. But I'll bet my bottom dollar that when they got the news, the first thing they did was say, "Please, Jesus, please don't let it be a heart attack..."

    "It's not? Whew! Booohoohoohoo!"

    WHO'S NEXT !!!

    Heart Attack Grill Spokesman Dies of Heart Attack

    John Alleman would stand outside the restaurant doors for hours, talking with customers and coaxing others to come in.

    The Las Vegas-based Heart Attack Grill appears to be living up to its ill-fated name.

    http://www.lasvegassun.com/news/2013...-heart-attack/

    John Alleman, the unofficial spokesman for the hospital-themed fast food chain, suffered a heart attack last week and was taken off life support Monday, the Las Vegas Sun reported.

    Alleman was 52.

    Restaurant owner “Doctor Jon” Basso told the Sun that Alleman was a regular fixture at the eatery, famous for its high-calorie menu that boasts a record-breaking 9,982-calorie Quadruple Bypass Burger.

    According to Basso, Alleman would stand outside the restaurant doors for hours, talking with customers and coaxing others to come in.

    “He never missed a day, even on Christmas,” Basso told the Sun. “He lived, ate and breathed the Heart Attack Grill.”

    Alleman is the second unofficial Heart Attack Grill spokesman to die in as many years, Gawker reported.

    In 2011, 29-year-old Blair River died of flu-related pneumonia, Basso said at the time.

    I'm guessing they are ordering Coke instead of Diet Coke. That's the only explanation I can come up with....
