An artifact from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle lore has been made real at San Diego Comic-Con: The Pizza Launcher, a weaponized truck that fires pizza instead of explosive shells.
Cowabunga, dude, save me a slice! A real-life version of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles' preposterous Pizza Launcher shows up at Comic-Con.
Comic-Con International has outgrown the San Diego Convention Center, where the event is held every year, and has spilled over to Petco Park and the entire Gaslamp District.
Sponsored by Pizza Hut, the modified truck has a rotating turret on top, but it's definitely not ready for a real-world Shredder. It fires less than one pie a minute.
To demonstrate the prowess of the Launcher, Pizza Hut set up cardboard targets to hit with its cardboard pizza projectiles. Nearby, the fast-food pizza house set up shop, giving away one free slice per person.
How strong is your pizza-fu? Even when they're lightweight cardboard, they're hard to aim. The pizza projectile, center, flopped short of its mark this time.
How many pizzas did Pizza Hut give away for the promo? A lot.
