Is that a cockroach beneath the pizza?
Status: UndeterminedHere's an ad, apparently created by a Brazilian extermination company, that is placed inside pizza boxes. The ad shows a photo of a dead roach, but it's only revealed as the pizza is removed from the box.
I'm sure the ad would attract people's attention, but I find it surprising that a pizza company would agree to place an ad like this beneath their food.
No word on if it's a real ad campaign, or just a mock up. (via nulovka via adrants)

It'd make me sit up and take notice.Posted by Nettie in Perth, Western Australia on Fri Feb 15, 2008 at 04:18 AM
If it's a Brazilian ad, why is the word "Delivery" in English on the outside of the box?Posted by Big Gary in Italy, Texas on Fri Feb 15, 2008 at 11:17 AM
By the way, "Dr. Barata" means "Doctor Cheap."

I tried to see if there was a Brazilian reverse lookup for the phone number, but I couldn't locate anything. Just punching the number into google didn't return anything.Posted by Maegan in Tampa, FL - USA on Fri Feb 15, 2008 at 01:44 PM
That's similar to that Orkin commercial where it would show a roach crawling on your TV screen. Fooled me the first time.Posted by J in AZ on Fri Feb 15, 2008 at 05:01 PM
Big Gary, English words are slipping into various languages even when there is a word in that language already. This may be such a case.Posted by Christopher Cole in Tucson, AZ on Fri Feb 15, 2008 at 09:53 PM
Some guy ate bugs on The Daily Show a few nights back. Musta been booked before the writer's strike ended. I once visited my brother when he was stationed in Alabama, and saw the Biggest Damn Roach I Ever Saw there. Three inches long, I kid you not. Ugh. And the roach was scary, tooPosted by Hairy Houdini on Mon Feb 18, 2008 at 12:19 AM
It's a fake! Nobody knows that extermination company nor the pizza company. The phone number is fake too. "011" is the code area for SPosted by M in Brazil on Mon Feb 18, 2008 at 09:20 AM
