Video: Interview with Juan Hermosillo, the Guy Tossing Pizzas in the Visa Commercial
If you're asking yourself, "Who is the pizza guy in the Visa commercial?" you're not alone. Since Visa started airing the commercial again about a month ago, I've seen a spike in keyword searches coming from Google, where people are looking to ID the pizza-tosser.
As we've pointed out before, his name is Juan Hermosillo, and he's a member of the United States Pizza Team, which describes itself as "a group of pizza-makers and dough acrobats whose goal is to bring the world's attention to the talent and camaraderie of the pizza industry."
Mr. Hermosillo works for Canadian chain Pizza Pizza, where he spins dough, teaches dough-spinning to Pizza Pizza employees, and performs at location openings. Since you've probably already seen the Visa pizza man/Mambo Italiano commercial, we at Slice figured we'd bring you these two videos(a second one appears after the jump). Enjoy!
