Your Guess Is As Good As Mine: Pizza Boomerang

Don’t get me wrong, dear readers, I love me some pizza, but that love has its limits. Take, for example, the boomerang shaped pizza featured in this “ad” by Sofa Experience Communications. Hurled down from the heavens by a Fabio-esque, greased up, and bespectacled man-god it seems delicious enough, but around the time it severs the genitals of a creepy gentleman exposing himself to a young lady in a park it loses some of its luster. In fact, it is exactly at that point that it loses all of its luster.

In all seriousness though, I have no idea what is supposed to be going on here. It’s like someone took a bunch of random ideas and a rubber dick, threw them in blender, and called it an advertisement. It’s the [adult swim]/Old Spice, Absurdist aesthetic taken to its logical conclusion, really. Where you would go from here, well, best not to imagine it.

    somewhere, in the back of my brain, a voice is saying “That would go great with an Orangina ad”

    Er… I don’t think this is an ad, it’s meant to be a joke. If this is an ad at all (and not “art” ie done purely for the lulz) it’s an ad for the company that made the clip–they’re not actually trying to sell boomerang shaped pizzas! For example the last sentence of the whole thing says “and this Christmas, try our special with Rudolph flavour!”

    I’m willing to bet good money that you won’t find Rudolph-flavoured boomerang-shaped pizzas in the shops. Yet.

    don – I agree, hence the quotes around the word ad in the post.

  6. Stella Says:

    Don’t eat that! It touched some gross creeper’s dick!

  7. Seth Says:

    Probably the most epic thing I’ve seen this year or the last. Dille goodbye, pizza redonda!

  8. Seth Says:

    don, while I agree this IS probably a joke, I wanted to point out that “Rudolph flavour” in Europe is entirely possible.

    I remember something in British news about an animal-rights group crying over reindeer pate actually creating a sell-out frenzy for the stuff.

    Pimiento y reindeer indeed!

    My first thought upon seeing this was the Boomerang Pizza God was a total jerk.

    I stand by that.
