Well, that PR stunt didn’t work.
Pizza Hut had offered free pizzas for life to the person who asked President Obama of Gov. Romney the question: sausage or pepperoni?
Pizza Hut got slammed near universally for making a mockery of the political system to get some cheap exposure.
So now, it’s hitting the eject button.
Pizza Hut CMO Kurt Kane put some positive spin on it in a statement:
“The anticipation and buzz around this question proves that this debate should be taken to the people … We’re no longer asking a few hundred attendees at the town hall presidential debate on Oct. 16 to pose the question, rather we’re bringing the question — Sausage or Pepperoni? — to millions of Americans.”
