Ask Obama or Romney ‘Sausage or Pepperoni?’ and You Get Free Pizza for Life
Everyone has something they’d like to ask the candidates at the next presidential debate. But if you’re brave enough to stand up in that highly televised forum and ask the age-old question “Sausage or pepperoni?”—free pizza for life shall be your reward.
Pizza Hut and its Pizza Party announced on Tuesday that they will provide a lifetime of free pizza—the option of one large pizza a week for the next 30 years, or a check for $15,600—to any attendee who asks either candidate this simple question during the live town hall format presidential debate on October 16 at Hofstra University.
“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, chief marketing officer of Pizza Hut. “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.”
Think it’s unlikely someone might do it? Just remember that during an MTV town hall debate once, President Bill Clinton was asked, “Boxers or briefs?”
“Usually briefs,” he said.
