Pizza Hut has dropped a series of new ads to promote its Detroit-Style pizza, which is now back to the menus, for a limited time only.
One of the spots features Craig Robinson getting a Detroit-Style pizza delivered to his door and greeting a neighbor who has ordered the same pizza and is raising a slice of it, too, as a way to say hello. The comedian is eager to enjoy the menu item, which has crispy corners and sauce on top, but it turns out he got locked outside. “You are trouble!” he says to the pizza he holds.
The commercial, scored by If You Know You Know by Pusha T, ends with the voiceover introducing the Detroit-style Pizza, now back at Pizza Hut, priced at $12.99. Viewers are encouraged to “Get it before it’s gone”.
“If You Know You Know”, included on the rapper’s “Daytona” album, is available for purchase on Amazon for $1.29.
This is not the first ad starring Robinson. The comedian appeared in several other ads for the pizza restaurant chain, promoting the Original Stuffed Crust, the all-new Edge, with thin, crispy crust and toppings to the edge, the Big Dinner Box, and the $10 Tastemaker.
His portfolio also includes appearances in commercials for insurance company The General, Walmart, Dodge, Hulu, Dietz & Watson, and more.
