Pizza Hut dares you to ask Obama and Romney: “pepperoni or sausage?”
Pizza Hut's CEO says the question is "very appropriate for a town hall debate."
PLANO Plano-based Pizza Hut wants the "real issues" to be debated at the October 16 presidential debate between Mitt Romney and Barack Obama, which is why they'll be awarding free pizza for life to someone who attends the debate and asks the presidential candidates "sausage or pepperoni?"
This is real.
To make matters
worse better, they're also pushing the Twitter hashtag #ThePizzaParty. How can we make this a drinking game while we're at it?
Cue the quote: "We recognize there are a lot of serious issues to be debated, but we also know a lot less serious -- but no less important -- ones are being discussed every night inside houses across the country," said Kurt Kane, CMO, Pizza Hut, in a statement. "So for the candidates to be able to show that they're in tune with all the issues, we felt a pizza-related question on behalf of The Pizza Party was very appropriate for a town hall debate."
The live, town hall-format presidential debate takes place at Hofstra University in New York. A press release says that complete details on what "free pizza for life" means can be found here. An official attendee to the debates can actually ask "pepperoni or sausage?" instead of "sausage or pepperoni?" if they're feeling really daring.
What would former Pizza Hut CEO and now Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings say? We've asked and are waiting on a response.
Oh yes, and there's this:
