Videos: Classic Drive-in Intermissions for Pizza

Quick Bites

News in one quick bite.

Norman just emailed me an audio file of a classic intermission promo for pizza from a drive-in theater. (Remember drive-ins? They were fun, weren't they?) Anyway, I did some digging and found a number of these spots on YouTube. An array of drive-in pizza ads appears after the jump. What's kind of amazing is how good some of the pizzas look in these promos. They remind me of some of the pizza you see from these pizza parlors that have been around "since 195x," which isn't surprising, given when these clips were made.

"You'll Say Our Pizza Is the Mosta"

This is the video version of the audio clip Norman sent me.

"Enjoy Tempting Food at Its Best"

Grabby Hands Greedy for "the Original Talona Pizza"

I thought this one looked familiar. When I looked at who had uploaded it to YouTube, it was me. Turns out I blogged this one up here on Slice almost two years ago.

Stereotypical Italian Chef Hawks Drive-in Pizza

Wow. Almost as offensive an Italian stereotype as the Jersey Shore folks?
