I LOVE THAT AD! I just saw it for the first time last night and was laughing so much I even e-mailed a friend about it.

That ad has been running here in BC for a few weeks now - excellent. First winner that they've had, as far as I'm concerned. Still not buying their product though... I make my own (dough and all)

I've seen it several times and thought it was plain stupid. Didn't see the humour in it at all. Perhaps it's something akin to the Trailer Park Boys; you either get a kick out of it or think it's dumb - there's no in-between.

I love the ad! Last Friday, my other half walked in the door carrying take out pizza (it was a cooking optional day), and I looked at him and purred "now this is what I call delivery". Two of my kids looked up startled, and said, "oh - Mom - ewwwwwww."

I found the commercial very amusing the first time. It still gives me a chuckle whenever I see it.

polly: that's fantastic!

Huh, we have a frozen pizza that uses that same tagline but its "its not delivery its DiGiornos"

Hmmm.

Delissio

DiGiornos

Ah, those crafty folks from Kraft - why two different names?

But hey, that ad sounds racy and saucy and funny and sure as hell will never see the light of day down here in the states.

Too bad.

Ya but you guys have a Kraft flying pizza balloon, and we don't.

I get lost in some of those grocery stores down there. It seems like every one of them is food extravaganza.

Oh, but this is the USA and THIS balloon is actually armed with twin front and back 30 mm cannon, 16 air to ground missiles and four nuclear tipped cruise missiles. The plan is to float it unobtrusively over Taipei just in case the Chinese attack Taiwan.

I know that DiGiorno has been around a lot longer than Delissio. It may be that someone else was already using the name commercially in Canada, or they just thought the new name was better, if DiGiorno is a brand they purchased in the U.S. and were stuck with.

I wouldn't say the ad was racy. I remember a sexier pizza ad with a woman running into a really sexy pizza delivery guy in the supermarket while buying frozen pizza and lamenting that he doesn't come around anymore, with him pointing out she doesn't order pizza anymore.

I always thought that wasn't the most efffective ad for frozen pizza, but then I remember the delivery guys I've met in real life, and frankly I'd pay extra to have them ring the bell and leave before I open the door.

Don't make pizza send out for you . . .

A trend I've noticed here in Cedar Rapids. More often than not, the pizza delivery person is female.

Haven't seen that one yet, but I'll be looking for it.

Thread drift: In northern Ontario 25+ years ago I was doing contract work, and one of my clients (a married woman) answered the door wearing nothing but a slip. I wasn't up for this, so I said I'd come back later in the day. Geez.

still, they aim this directly at the huge baby boomer heartland. you know long time married with kids and all that that entails. the opening scene plays into the sexual frustration of the baby boom (not getting enuf) and teases us with the fantasy of illicit, naughty sex. then the second scene reveals that these baby boomers are actually taking advice from everyone from ellie to rona and are trying to spice up their sex lives with a little role playing. only to have it ruined by ...teenagers!

and as RB says: the kids disgust just drips.

Question: Who here has actually bought Dellisio pizza?

I have, and it's not half bad, although on their deluxe I have to pick the olives off before I cook it (easier than after!) and give them to my dog. Well I don't have to give them to my dog, I just have to pick them off. Can't abide olives. Awful, awful, nasty tasting things. I'd rather watch my parents do role-play than eat an olive.

I have had various jobs and such that required going to people's doors. You wouldn't believe what some people wear, or don't wear to the door for complete strangers.

I love olives, even if I'm not fond of how they're processed (something to do with bleach, I think). I love lots of olives and onions on my pizza, on those rare occasions when I have one. The more olives, the less room there is for nasty stuff like heavilly processed fatty pepperoni and even more fatty salami. Lean ham and pineapple are okay too. Lots of pineapple... mmmmmmmm.

This ad is funny, cute and not all that racy.

I thought you were referring to the new (Pizza Hut?) one, wherein a 14-year-old boy is sexually assulted by a - er, um.... lap-dancer? - with bits of cheese-stuffed crust. That's in really bad taste.

You mean the one with Jessica Simpson?

Yah, I found that one in extremely bad taste, and it ends with Kermit asking for the same, and getting a kick from Miss Piggy.

Now the role-playing commerical is quite humorous.

I recall seeing a similar commercial for a different product where the wife is dressed as a french maid and the kid walks in exhibiting the same level of disgust and disbelief with his parents.
