This isn't a Domino's commercial but they had me fooled for a few.

BTW PG13 or perhaps R.......

Someone went to a lot of trouble to create a very unfunny video. Great production, mediocre acting, amateur writing. Nice try, but this one isn't going viral.

Hey, everyone's a critic.  :)

I thought it was pretty funny, but thats probably because I'm young and immature. The American History X part at the end is awesome, love that movie.

Well I have serious old f*rt cred and I think slapping a Domino's tattoo over an iconic film moment doesn't show much creativity. Hey, you kids, get off my lawn!

I think you need to also watch the actual domino's videos to see how similar they are...

check out some of the videos on

http://www.pizzaturnaround.com/


probably the first video, and then if you scroll down there's one that says "We delivered our #newpizza to our harshest critics."

Thanks, Patrick. I hadn't seen those ads. Almost all the TV I watch is TiVo'd so I rarely watch commercials. I'll give Domino's points for a ballsy approach. (Are their pies actually edible now? Do I have the nerve to try?) I still think the satire was lame, especially given its high production values.

Bill,
I had only eaten Dominos twice in my life.  I thought I would give the new ones a try because of the special, two medium pies with two toppings for $5.99 each.  I purchased a hand tossed and a thin crust.  They were not good at all, in fact we never ate the leftovers.  Can't figure why it's that hard to make something even half good.

after the first 15 seconds it was clearly not a real commercial
oh and this is R rated, you can maybe drop 1 f bomb(if at all) in a 2.5 hr  and be a pg13 movie ...

I agree completely.......not defending Domino's AT ALL, but with any similar type of mass marketed product (Budweiser, McDonalds, Pizza Hut, etc) that is not only sold at multiple locations but made at various locations, it is no small challenge to come up with a product that tastes the same no matter where you eat it.  --K
