Pizza Hut Selling a $150 Weighted Blanket for the Holidays
Got a pizza lover in your life who's also always cold? Now, they can snuggle up beneath Pizza Hut's 'Original Pan' weighted blanket.
Weighted blankets are becoming more and more popular as the therapeutic benefits of their use become more widely known (my doctor recommended I get one to reduce anxiety and help me sleep better). So, naturally even a company like Pizza Hut would try and ride that wave.
Reportedly, Pizza Hut teamed up with Gravity Blanket to create its (72-inches in diameter) pepperoni-covered pizza blanket, according to Nation's Restaurant News. And, even though its $150, I'm ready to ditch the one I already own in favor of this one. I love pizza that much. I love PIZZA HUT PIZZA that much.
Pizza Hut's chief marketing officer George Felix tells nrn.com, “This partnership with Gravity Blanket was the perfect solution to bring one of our legendary pizzas to life while bringing our fans a little TLC at the same time.”
Put this underneath the tree for someone you love and they'll get TWO surprises. The first being, 'What the heck is THIS? It's so heavy!'. The second, 'Is this a pizza blanket?'
I just wish there was even more incentive to buy it. It cool that it looks like a Pizza Hut 'Original Pan' pizza, but for that price couldn't it come with an ACTUAL pan pizza and maybe some soda? Just saying.
But it there for ya if you want to splurge on a funny gift. It's available for purchase at gravityblankets.com.
