“Just like an interception, I bet you didn’t see this one coming.” That’s how pizza chef/party animal Papa John Shattner begins his latest commercial with Peyton Manning.
The ad promotes Papa John’s new Fritos Pizza. The chili pizza has fritos sprinkled on the top of the pizza’s cheese.
The commercial has aired infinity times during Caps games over the last week. Every time I’ve seen it, it makes me want to hurl. To me, it’s a disgusting idea and it appears that Papa John’s is trying to take advantage of the success (maybe?) Taco Bell had with its Doritos Taco Shell.
Anyways, this Caps game is no fun, so I asked you what you thought. Like always, you delivered.

@ianoland My thoughts are that until you live-tweet eating one, it doesn't exist.

@ianoland Id try it. But I think I would regret it immediately.

@ianoland The chili sauce isn't great

@ianoland I’m almost afraid to admit that I’ve ordered it… however, it was surprisingly good and might be my favorite of their specialties.

@ianoland so gross

@ianoland wondering what the failed ideas were that a frito pizza actually made the production line

@ianoland you hear about Pizza Hut in Australia with Doritos crust injected with cheese too

@ianoland It was terrible. Spend your 15 bucks on a different pizza.
