It Came From YouTube: The Von Erich Brothers’ “Pizza Inn” commercial

5 Submitted by on Wed, 20 March 2013, 00:00

The Von Erich Brothers aren’t just Wrestling Experts- they’re Pizza Experts, too!

Unfortunately, what they aren’t are Acting Experts.

This commercial makes me want four things really bad:

1. Awesome 80′s feathered hair

2. A nifty polo shirt.

3. Some of those tasty-looking blueberry muffins.

4. A time machine so I can go back in time to take advantage of this offer for very cheap food and a goofy telephone.

Now that’s what I call an effective commercial, even all these years later.

To my surprise, Pizza Inn still exists! The Blueberry Muffins aren’t mentioned on the menu, and I’m sure the buffet costs a little more now, but I bet the food is still great and they have some really creative speciality pizzas available.

What are your favorite specialty pizzas of all time and what’s the best pizza place you’ve ever been to? Let us know in the Comments section below!

    I remember having a Pizza Inn in my community. Sadly they were way on the decline when I was there.

    I grew up going to Pizza Inn. They’re all over the South and Midwest. They had a cheap buffet. a soft-serve ice cream machine, and chocolate chip dessert pizza!

    We had Pizza Inn growing up in Houston, I don’t remember the Von Erichs shilling it though (we had Paul Boesch’s territory, but I think we got WCCW too). The pizza truly sucked, it was like sub Little Caesar’s. About CiCi’s level, just tomato sauce on a greasy slab of cardboard.
