Pizza's Origins Traced to Korea

"I hate Marco Polo. He stole one of our national treasures. He stole pizza from Korea."

[Via gumshoepictures.com]

Italy stole pizza from Korea! ...at least according to this brilliant satire funded by the Korean pizza outlet Mr. Pizza. In terms of clever ads, It definitely blows Domino's attempt out of the water. The artifacts (especially the scrolls and pizza cutter) make for some very convincing touches.

Robyn Lee, who spotted this via @ZenKimchi has been to Mr. Pizza and reported back about her experience to Slice. In case your curious about their pies, you can check out her two cents here.

This definitely has to go on our next YouTube pizza playlist.
