Pizza Hut Continues Summer-Long Ninja Turtles Promotion with Tribute to iconic Pizza Thrower Toy, Sampling of Cheesy Bites at Event
Comic Con attendees will have a new attraction to feast their eyes on this year.
The attraction weighs 2 tons. Stands 12 feet high. Took 7 weeks to build. And fires pizzas. From a custom cannon. Up to 30 feet! From a seat perched on top of turret.
Starting Wednesday at the Petco Park Interactive Zone, Pizza Hut will reveal a life-size, fully-functional “Pizza Thrower,” a nod to the classic TMNT toy and the latest way the pizza company is partnering with Paramount on the upcoming movie release. The Pizza Thrower (rendering and video below, spec sheet attached) will be open to the public to try throughout the convention. The Thrower will fire faux Cheesy Bites Pizzas at Ninja Turtles enemies, and participants will receive free slices of the popular Pizza Hut pizza.
