The squeaky clean image of Pizza Hut in the early 80s didn’t last too long. You can only go through so many neon aerobic workout videos before it changes a person or a company. By the 90s anyone and everyone was hocking PS1 demo discs and cassette tapes and we learned it from Father Pizza Hut. We emulated our pizza lord and pizza savior for a taste of that personal pan freedom. The reign was short lived; soon other pizza deities would come into the space and we had no room in our heard for a vengeful, midwestern God of a pizza chain. The other guys had ticket games and Mortal Kombat II and we were hungry. Always hungry. Still, we find a red see-through cup from time to time and think about where we came from, in the dim glow of Tiffany lamps illuminating our path. You sigh. Your hometown screams. Ahhhhh.
