John Alleman, the unofficial spokesman for the Heart Attack Grill in Las Vegas, has died of a heart attack.
For the past year and a half, Alleman would stand outside of the restaurant and try to encourage people to come inside. Owner Jon Basso didn’t actually pay him for this, but would occasionally give him some free food.
“I told him if you keep eating like this, it’s going to kill ya,” Basso told the Las Vegas Sun.
The Heart Attack Grill is known for its over-the-top burger creations such as the quadruple bypass burger, which holds the Guinness World Record for “most calorific burger.”
