Stalker Pizza Mascot!

Stop whatever you are doing and watch these new commercials from Mellow Mushroom! They're so good that if you get caught watching them at work, you'll probably get a raise. More

Do Not Watch This If You Hold Willie and Waylon in High Regard

Adam Kuban 3 comments

I think I kinda vaguely remember this commercial for Pizza Hut's stuffed-crust pizza. I mean, it sort of rings a bell. But as a Willie Nelson and Waylon Jennings fan* I think I also blocked it out as being too traumatic. If you are a fan of Willie and/or Waylon, do not watch this.

* "Luckenbach, Texas" is probably in my top 8 songs of all time.

Zach "Midtown Lunch" Brooks writes: Knowing you, this was probably on Slice a million years ago — but just in case it wasn't, here you go :-) ------------------------------------------------------------ Actually, we've featured a lot of wacky pizza videos from Asia, but this is the first time this particular one, from South Korea, has crossed my desk.

Video: Interview with Juan Hermosillo, the Guy Tossing Pizzas in the Visa Commercial

Adam Kuban 4 comments

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... More

Video: Tabasco Singing Pepperoni Pizza Commercial

OK. I just saw this while watching The Daily Show tonight, and I have to say, it really, really weirds me out. While I know people who dig Tabasco on their pizza, I'm now afraid that shaking some of the hot stuff on my slice would cause it to break out in a greasy barbershop quartet. Do you add Tabasco to your pizza? (Video, after the jump.)... More

Adam Kuban 8 comments

In a Q&A in the New York Times, the paper's advertising columnist answers reader questions. One question: Who is that wonderful pizza man in the Visa commercial? I love the commercial every time I see it.I have to admit that I'm not sure I would want to eat a pizza that has run over his back and down his arm. But oh, I sure like to watch that sexy guy. The short answer: Juan Hermosillo, who works for Pizza Pizza in Ontario. Now you know where he works; maybe you can watch him in person. Related Pizza-Tossing Antics ...... More

In Videos: Rain's South Korean Pizza Hut Commercial

Adam Kuban 7 comments

Most Americans not familiar with South Korean pop culture probably know Rain--if at all--from The Colbert Report, where host Stephen Colbert has had a longstanding fake feud with the ultra-popular pop singer, dancer, model, and actor. (Rain topped Colbert in a 2007 Time magazine online reader poll of "100 Most Influential People.") Well, here's one more thing Rain has on Colbert--a Pizza Hut commercial. [The video, after the jump.]... More

I'd forgotten all about this board game until finding this video on YouTube. Please excuse the poor video quality: If I remember correctly, I think my sister may have gotten it for Christmas one year.... More
