Ringo Starr Eats Pizza & Reunites the Monkees!
I vaguely remember watching this Pizza Hut commercial when it first came out. I think it's in poor taste that Ringo says "Lads!", when you still think he's going to be reuniting the Beatles and not the Monkees (which is what ends up happening, in the twist ending), because, I don't know if anyone told the Pizza Hut commercial director about this, but John Lennon died, you know? So why is he calling out "Lads"? Is he calling "Lads!" to the heavens? Stop calling dead people "Lads," Ringo Starr. I don't like when Ringo gets macabre. It scares me.
Although my memories of watching this Pizza Hut commercial are vague, my memories of the cultural hubbub surrounding the introduction of the Pizza Hut cheese-filled crust and subsequent "Eat the crust first!" non-phenomenon are clear as crystal. That pizza was underwhelming, and disgusting. I'm so sorry Ringo Starr had to get involved.
