pizza thrower

People of Earth! That Pizza Thrower we mentioned? The life-size functioning vehicle based on the pizza-shooting tank thing that was sold as a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles toy back in 1989? It has appeared at Comic-Con International at San Diego. And while Pizza Hut may have funded its creation simply to tie-in to marketing for the new, sure to be ridiculous Michael Bay movie, I think we can all agree on one point: this is an amazingly absurd thing that now exists.

Below the break, you shall see video footage of the Pizza Thrower launching its odd, fake pizzas through the air. With gusto!

Ninja Pizza Girl

Disparity Games has a Kickstarter campaign for a game called a Ninja Pizza Girl. Best title ever? Possibly. It’s fitting, too, since the game is about a 16-year-old girl who delivers pizzas in a dystopian world with a lack of good pizza. It was inspired by the daughter of the developers, who was a kung-fu practicing pizza delivery girl in real life. In the game, she must fight to keep her family’s business intact in the midst of chaos that includes mean teenage girls. The official description reads:

Ninja Pizza Girl is the story of Gemma, a sixteen-year-old girl working as a pizza delivery girl in a cyberpunk dystopia. She lives in a world where slums teeter on top of skyscrapers, where powerful mega-corporations exploit the poor and where quality pizza is hard to come by. Gemma must fight to keep her ideals, her family and their business intact in face of the most merciless enemies known to any teenage girl—other teenagers.

The level-based game has a story that explores “bullying, emotional resilience and the importance of boundaries.” Disparity also touts it as welcoming to people who have never played a platform game (or any game) before. The graphics look lovely, and I hope they get enough funds to move forward with creating the game.

The new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie will be in theaters on August 8th, and it looks like the Turtles have a new gig already lined up. They’re appearing in Pizza Hut commercials touting the wonders of Cheesy Bites. This isn’t the first time they’ve teamed up with the pizza chain. Way back in the ’90s the boys were working to convince you to stop in at Pizza Hut for a slice.

See both commercials after the break.

Pizza Bed concept art

One of my versions of heaven might be curling up inside a slice of pizza and enjoying a solid night’s sleep. Artist Claire Manganiello has drawn that dream for me with this glorious pizza bed concept art. It features pillow cases that look like the crust and a comforter covered in cheese and pepperoni. I feel so sad that this isn’t a real product, and I feel like I need to order pizza for dinner tonight.

These easy to assemble cardboard stools look like stuff you had lying around, but they’re actually very sturdy and made to collapse in order to save space. There are four designs to choose from including a stack of pizza boxes, a case of beer, books, or a bunch of LPs. Each will hold over 400 pounds!

marshmallow caramel pizza

Pizza Hut in Japan has decided to celebrate the 100th anniversary of Morinaga Milk Caramel Candy with a special Morinaga Milk Caramel and marshmallow pizza.

Yep. You’re looking at a hand-tossed cheddar cheese crust, topped with Morinaga Milk Caramel, marshmallows, and (I think) almond slivers.

If you want to try it, you have to get to Japan by June 30th.

Francesco’s Pizzeria has a reputation for delicious thin-crust pizza, but they’re now known more for their delivery than their food. The restaurant recently made a delivery by drone in order to avoid the city’s terrible traffic. It might make their customers happy, but the authorities have other thoughts on the matter. According to the BBC:

The city police now say they’re checking whether the restaurant asked permission from the civil aviation authorities. “As per norms, permission must be taken for flying any such object,” an air traffic control official says. A local police chief told the told the PTI news agency: “We are very sensitive towards anything that flies in the sky with the help of remote control.” Indian security forces are nervous about the possibility of terror attacks using paragliders or drones.

This was supposedly just a one-shot deal where a pizza was delivered to a friend of the CEO who lives about a mile away from the shop, but they’re not ruling out the possibility of delivering pizzas this way in the future.

See a video of the delivery after the break.
