Video Village With Ask Chris: The Heimlich Helper AKA Don't Spend Thanksgiving Alone
Marc Price, who played Skippy the wacky neighbor on Family Ties, is promoting a new wonder product out of Canoga Park. From the makers of Big John jumbo-sized toilet seats, comes the Heimlich Helper. The safety tool looks like a cross between a pogo stick and a sledgehammer and is used as a “Self Assist Choking Emergency Device.” Price stars in this promotional video and provides a great gift idea for those who might be enjoying a... solitary Thanksgiving. “It’s a potential life saver,” says company president Scott Kramer. “For anyone who eats alone.” TV’s Skippy is planning ahead for Christmas and says he’s buying Heimlich Helpers for his entire family.
