Take a look at this panel from the flyer:
|Pizza Pizza’s 'Canadian Pie' -- umm...|
|Movie poster for American Pie|
I know this sophomoric flick dates from the last century, but has anyone at the Pizza Pizza marketing department actually seen this movie?
Don’t they remember what happens to the pie?
I suspect there has been a failure here to fully consider the connotations invoked by this particular pop-cultural reference.
What exactly are they trying to tell us about their pizza?
Incidentally, for those of you who were fans of the original flick, the ‘ten-year’ American Reunion movie (starring the same cast) is due to be released shortly...
[If anyone has somehow escaped hearing about the plot of the film and still don’t understand what the joke is (e.g. some of my international readers), may I cordially advise you that looking it up online (or watching the movie) may cause you to entertain second thoughts about ordering this item.]
