That is, if you count a student production from a university you've never heard of! This ad shows the chain's founder making lousy pizzas for a studio audience.

Thanks, Papa John's. You actually got me believing for a moment that Papa John personally made those crappy pizzas himself!

Sleepy Papa John must have some kind of executive privilege, because he always wears blue jeans in all the "Papa's in the House" commercials. When I worked as a delivery driver for Papa John's in late 2007, we could not wear blue jeans.

This is not any worse than when Pizza Hut had commercials where restaurant diners thought their (Pizza hut) pasta dishes where made by the restaurant and were really good.  Pleassssse!  I hate commercials like this because they are so ridiculously stupid.

Living in NJ I have the benefit of not needing to purchase pizza's from these chains (Domino's-Pizza Hut-or Papa Johns), because we are surrounded here by pizza shops that continually cook the finest pizza's ever produced.
Seeing this chap sitting in a crowd at a cooking show made me laugh when I first saw it.
I tried his pizza once and was not happy.
The crust tasted mass produced and resembled matzo (yuk! )
The sauce tasted sweet and not like tomato at all.
The cheese was chewy and didn't taste fresh at all.
The spices provided in the little packet were just awful.
This chap is from Indiana, somehow Indiana does not impress me as being the hub of good pizza.
Thank goodness for pizza from NYC and Philly!
Simply the best!!

I concur with Jimmy.  I grew up in NJ and grew up eating some really good pizza.  I tried PJs once too and the crust is wafer thin and I would aqree that it is Matzo-like.  Pretty gross.

I've been off pizza since February of 2007 (needed to lose weight).  Recently, though, I bought a little frozen pizza-like product at The Dollar Tree.  Total crap.  But having really been craving pizza, it was delicious.  Kinda sad.  Unhappy 
 
 
I don't know what it is, but the pizza from the little independently-owned pizzerias in California is different from the pizza I grew up eating in NJ.  I've grown to like it equally.  Less burnt and greasy.  I don't know why.  It might have to do with how long it's baked.

There's a "gourmet" pizzeria in San Francisco called Pizza Inferno whose pizza is basically "toppings on crackers" and they're only available in single servings (about 10" in diameter).  But the decor is hip, the prices high, the clientele trendy, and so lots of people think it's great.  I went there once.  That was enough.  I felt ripped-off.

...one would think we live in 'Pizza Heaven'...alas, no.

There are a few good places to grab a good pizza (they are independent), but it is nothing like The City, or Chicago (when it was a basic staple).
 
We've more or less made 'Pizza Runs' a 'once in a blue moon' thing....and forget the silly 'fanciness' where people dump crap like pineapple on it; give us a good ol' "meat eaters with cheese".

Yeecch! That's not real pizza. Those oh-so-trendy, pretentious hipster "pizza" places wouldn't know real pizza if it bit them in the ass.

NYC pizza RULES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Yuck! I like NJ-NYC-Philly pizza, grease and all. I can't stand that pretentious crap that trendy douchebags think are gourmet. They're not.
I also detest Chicago "deep-dish" pizza. Too doughy, and I don't care for the sauce.
Our east coast pizza is the best.
I enjoy Italian sausage, green peppers,onions,and mushrooms on mine. Nothing like it!!
Damn, now I'm HUNGRY! Time to call Nicks!
