My thoughts on...Porno Pizza
Over the years, pizza companies have been trying to find various ways to get you to buy their pie. Breadsticks, brownies, cinna-stix, free drinks, free pizzas, free pizza upgrades, special deals on special days, etc. But a new pizza restaurant in Canada just may have the thing to trump them all...

Porn.

You heard me. Porno Pizza hides pornographic pictures at the bottom of every box of their pizza, which is slowly revealed as you eat each slice. A photo ID is required to enter the establishment of course. Many are offended by the distasteful gimmick, especially child advocacy groups. Owner Corey Wildeman is unfazed, saying "you'll never go broke appealing to the lowest common denominator. Everyone knows: sex sells." (At least he's honest.) I'm thinking that Mr. Wildeman is a young adult, because this is something a frat boy would think up. He came up with the idea after he and his buds were joking around about lonely women who were visited by strapping, young delivery boys, and made a delivery of a different sort. And given the fact that 75% of their customers are women (who says that women aren't into porn?), they were right.

I think this is rather a shameless and lewd way to start a business. Sure this marketing stunt will amuse people for a while, and sure, it will enjoy some limited prosperity, but after a while, people will get tired of it. No one will want to associated with such sleaze. People won't want to walk out of a pizza store wearing a raincoat or a wig like they do at adult video stores. Not like I'd know or anything. But as long as there are horny young men with limited social skills ready to gawk at naked hotties, they will always have customers. And it is indeed a success! Big surprise. So much so that there are plans to open franchises all over Canada. So there may just be a Porno Pizza near you soon. So next time you stop over at a buddy's house and grab a slice of his pizza, be careful. That sticky stuff on the crust, may not be cheese.

    What will people think of next, maybe they should put a picture of some bufalo wings or more pizza at the bottom. That way you may get hu gry again and order another!

    nasty.

    there's a place in my old hood called supermodel's pizza; their logo is actually a superstretched immaciated baby, which, gross as that sounds, is actually kind of funny. their motto is 'our crust is as thin as a supermodel.' it's very weird, but i must admit they make a good pie.

    as for porn pizza, i'll give it a pass.

    "the sticky stuff may not be cheese "
    LOL! Now I'll never be able to eat Pizza again without wondering about that.:-D

    It really is a dunce idea...but sadly people are drawn to porn. That figure about the number of women customers is interesting though. I would have thought they had mostly male...er...customers.

    I don't think the porn is to get you to buy the pizza... It's more of a publicity stunt to get people talking about it...

    Which obviously worked!

    Personally... I think it's flippin' genius!

    The place has generated enough free PR to make Paris proud...

    It is sleazy, all right!

    The other thing I have always wondered about is that trope about the delivery boys, handymen, etc. who
    "make deliveries of another sort." Does this really happen, or is it one of those urban legends / male fantasies?
