Not for the offer itself, but rather for the brand marketing intern they made stand outside the company's Plano, Texas, headquarters for the past week in full Queen's Guard regalia to await the announcement that a new British prince had been born.
The former Mormon missionary has donned a Royal Guard uniform over his business casual clothes every workday since last Monday, and stood "watch" near a "cheasel" proclaiming a "royal offer" to "loyal fans" courtesy of "The High Order of Pizza Hut of the United States of America."
"It’s actually harder to be a royal guard in Texas," Smallwood said, unironically. "They have it easy over there [in the UK]."
God save us all.
UPDATE: Pizza Hut's PR mouthpiece has sent us a statement "clarifying" some things concerning the promotion above.
First, Smallwood "volunteered" for the promotion. Second, he was only outside twice "for a short period of time." Third, Pizza Hut is "committed to the well-being of our employees and would never promote a marketing campaign that threatens this."
In conclusion, keep calm and eat pizza.
