Domino’s Delivers Pizza And Fixes Potholes

Because of all the corporations that would help fix America’s crumbling infrastucture, it would totally be Domino’s, right? It’s hard to hate on this campaign, though it’s pretty sad that it has to exist.

Pizza Hut Advertises Shoes That Can Order Pizza And Pause Your TV

Well, this is utterly bizarre. The shoes are called Pie Tops 2.0, because apparently they introduced them last year (how did I miss this?) Anyway, the shoes are being marketed for March Madness, which seems like an ideal time.

Tums Chewy Bites Vs. A Slice Of Pepperoni Pizza At A Skating Rink

Tums has had a number of commercials featuring food fighting the people that just ate them. They’re underratedly funny. In this one, a slice of pepperoni pizza starts whooping a guy’s ass while they’re roller skating. Fortunately, he takes Tums Chewy Bites (which really sound like candy), and soon enough they’re dancing with each other. Huzzah! Also, here’s an amusing one with bacon beating up a guy during a traffic jam.

T-Mobile Shows A Babysitter Who Charges Extra Fees

I chuckled at this T-Mobile spot. She’s perhaps not the most responsible babysitter. She charged $30, but the total was $50 after the fees. There’s a pizza ordering fee…we see the son asleep on a pizza box with half-eaten pizza. Then the dog sitting fee, with the daughter giving the dog a not so flattering cut. Finally the rummage through the closet fee, where the babysitter wears the woman’s high heels and snarkily declares “we’re the same size…in shoes.” I mean who is she, Verizon? Haha. The babysitter is Casimere Jollette, and the wife is Heather Simpson.

This Homesick Alien Loves Pizza Hut’s Grilled Cheese Stuffed Pizza

I’ve heard pizza compared to sex, in the sense that even crappy pizza is better than no pizza at all. I think Pizza Hut is fine, although many people I know would disagree. But if the little guy gets so emotional about Grilled Cheese Stuffed Pizza, I wonder what his reaction would be if he had some high quality New York pizza or Chicago deep dish (don’t argue…they’re both delicious).

Tuesday Throwback: This Kid Wants Lunchables Pizza

I was randomly thinking about Lunchables today. If a kid brought in a lunch of crackers, processed meat slices, and “cheese” (i.e. pasteurized prepared cheese product), that wouldn’t be cool. But add a little candy bar, a Capri-Sun pouch, and put it in a snazzy package, and suddenly you’ve got the lunch everyone wants. Advertising certainly made added to the demand for Lunchables , and some research showed that kids felt empowered eating them, because they could put together their own cracker sandwiches the way they wanted. As Lunchables became more popular, they branched out into other food items. In this 1995 commercial, we see a young boy clamoring for pizza lunch every day, only to be disappointed by a steady stream of brown bag sandwiches. When he finally gets Lunchables “pizza”…good times. The boy was played by Alex D. Linz, who starred in the crappy Home Alone 3 a few years later.

Old Italian People Hate Pizza Hut

Pizza is a traditionally Italian food. Pizza Hut is decidedly different than that standard, and they’re changing even more with their new “The Flavor of Now” menu. So in this new campaign, Pizza Hut shows its new offerings to grumpy old Italians, who don’t like it, or any other “modern” things. I’m not really sure what the point of this ad is, but it’s quite lame and fake.
