Showbiz Pizza TV Commercial (1982)

With Flack’s post this afternoon I thought we might take a moment and look back at the other famous Pizza entertainment empire, Showbiz Pizza! Though what seems to be missing from this commercial from back in March of 1982?

  1. Carlos…there might be a reason you don’t remember the pizza, my friend. Your brain is trying to blank it out. ;)

    By the way…has anyone noticed there is not a single kid featured in that commercial?

    I remember how bad it was. Really, really bad. I’m still trying to stop tasting it.

  3. Yeah, the pizza was universally terrible. That’s what makes that commercial hilarious.

    It’s more true to say, “Go for the arcade fun, and eventually eat quick bites of some sh*tty pizza in between games of Spy Hunter and Dig Dug.”
