Roddy Piper’s Bubblegum Quote In ‘They Live’ Kicked Some Butt (Video)

For all the bombast Roddy Piper showed in the ring and on wrestling shows, perhaps he’ll be best remembered for one line he delivered in a sci-fi film.

Piper, who died Thursday night at age 61, fought aliens in the 1988 movie “They Live” and had a simple message upon spotting some bad guys in a bank. (Warning: This was a shoot-em-up film, so the following clip might be a bit graphic for some viewers)

Piper’s “chew bubblegum and kick ass” attitude resonated, inspiring the Duke Nukem video-game character and even a line of bubblegum-flavored soda personally endorsed by the wrestler.

You can buy the soda online, if you feel like pouring one out for Piper.
