      Those were a treat. Why did the '70s ever have to end? (Wait, Disco...but of course.)

      Also, did anyone else watch the first video and want to scream, "but of course the Weber is untouchable! Have you ever tried putting your hand on 450 F metal?!"

        I thought the same thing when he said "Untouchable"

      I especially like the moment at minute :42 when he pulls the lid to reveal that he is cooking LSD in his Weber kettle . . .

      Also, you might recognize Mr. Paul Picerni Star, of TV and Screen, as Federal Agent Lee Hobson from the ABC series "The Untouchables" starring Robert Stack.

        Probably exactly why they had him use that word "untouchable" more than once.

      You know, I cannot remember the last time I ever saw a commercial for any grill. I think there used to be some spots before or after some episodes of Project Smoke when it aired on PBS, relating to some of the sponsors like Weber or Bradley, but I've not seen anything like that on regular TV or cable in many years.

        Yeah, but who really watches regular TV anymore? I know I watch less and less all the time. Meanwhile, on YouTube and websites, ads for grills are almost all I ever see.

      The Webber is untouchable even with a 10 ft. Poll.

        Got a particular kick out of the Peter Max-esque artwork when he lifted the lid........totally '70s man

          Ayuh, Weber is very fitting, since The Untouchables job was to grill the Chicago mob!
