When you’ve only got 30 minutes to deliver a pizza, you better have a little magic on your side.

Ever the innovators, Domino’s Pizza, the inventor of the Pizza Tracker, is training reindeer to deliver pizza.

According to a press release from Domino’s Japan, they have begun testing reindeer to deliver pizza, cheesy bread, wings, and ice-cold Coca-Cola products right to your doorstep. The animals will be equipped with a GPS, so customers can track the reindeer’s course via smart phone. By the looks of this video, the reindeers, who are transported in a small crate, are treated much better than on the North Pole and genuinely want to deliver pizza.

Fortune reports, “Domino’s is still working out the kinks of its new delivery method. The first attempt involved attaching pizza boxes to the reindeer’s back, but those quickly fell off. The second attempt reverted back to tradition: Reindeers pulling pizza in a red sleigh.”

No word yet on if bad tippers get coal instead of pizza. Also, no confirmation on whether or not this is just a hoax or a piece of viral marketing. The press release promises an update on Thursday.

Let’s just hope these reindeer are quick enough to "avoid the Noid."

As technology gets better, fake IDs get worse.

The Daily Hampshire Gazette reports that a woman was arrested outside a bar in Amherst, Mass, after she struck the doorman in the face. Now what could have led to that? When he asked for her ID, she attempted to give him a slice of pizza.

“After being informed that pizza was not a valid means of gaining entry to the establishment, the woman slapped the doorman in the face, according to police, and was issued a trespass notice to stay away from the location.”

Everyone knows that pizza isn’t a valid form of ID, but it is a good bargaining tool, whether you’re trying to get your kid brother to clean your room or you’re trying to lurer the Ninja Turtles back to your layer.

Look, physical violence is never acceptable, but it does seem like a lot of people in this situation had zero chill.

Lazy Kiwi's can rejoice! Domino's Pizza has chosen Auckland, New Zealand as the first place they are going to test out drone pizza delivery!

The DRU drone, by maker Flirtey looks pretty good for the task, and we're hoping it will carry a heated bag so we don't get our pie's tepid at our door.





Because nothing's worse than limp pizza.

The Marion Country Sheriff's department in Oregon shared this story on their Facebook about how the delivery drivers at a local Domino's saved the life of a loyal customer:

On Sunday, May 8th an alert Domino’s delivery driver called the Sheriff’s Office after a regular customer failed to order a pizza from the Salem area company. Tracey Hamblen, an employee at Domino’s on Silverton Road NE, called the Sheriff’s Office after not speaking with the customer in 11 days. Mr. Hamblen had formed a relationship with the victim because of the regular orders and knew he suffered form severe health issues.

When the Sheriff’s Office arrived at the residence in the 4100 block of Penticton Circle NE, they could hear a man calling for help from inside the residence. Deputies forced entry and found Kirk Alexander, age 48, of Salem down and in need of immediate medical attention.

Thanks to the quick actions of Mr. Hamblen, Mr. Alexander is in stable condition at the Salem Hospital. The Sheriff’s Office would like to personally thank Mr. Hamblen for his quick actions and willingness to take time out of his day to care for others.

So far, it seems like this new "pizza robot" is only being introduced in New Zealand. According to a Facebook post by Domino's, the new delivery system, that they call DRU, isn't out in full force but it's getting there:

DRU has a passion for delivering piping hot meals and a nice warm smile to customers. While he won't be taking to the streets tomorrow, he is enjoying his early progress as a prototype and giving customers a glimpse into the future of what is possible.

This idea seems very similar to an April Fools day campaign that Domino's UK ran last year. Could that be what started this project?

Totally Necessary Invention of The Day: Domino's Creates an "Easy Order" Button For Your House

Looking to shave a few seconds off your pizza order? Well, you're in luck.

Domino's is testing out a new "Easy Order" button in the UK. And if you're really, really into pizza—this might do the trick for you.

From Engadget:

The Easy Order actually comes in two forms: a physical and a virtual button. The physical option is provided by Flic and is a tiny magnetic button that can be programmed to do a number of different things. We've seen it used to control various phone functions, like snoozing an alarm or taking a photo, in the past, but Domino's will pair it with an app over Bluetooth in order for it to become your pizza delivery companion. Simply save your address and payment details on the Domino's website or app and select your favourite order -- the rest takes care of itself.

We're one useless invention away from Smart House.

"Keep the change, ya filthy animal."

The month marks the 25 anniversary of Home alone. To commemorate the fact that the '90s were, yes, really THAT long ago—UberEATS is selling pizza from the Christmas classic.

Starting at 11 a.m., fans can order the classic cheese pizza that Kevin orders before scaring away the pizza guy.

Uber drivers bearing the Little Nero's hats and car logo will bring the pies in their appropriate Little Nero's Pizza boxes. The pizza will actually be local restaurants such as Numero 28 Pizzeria in New York, The Doughroom in Los Angeles, Big G's Pizza in Chicago or Patxi's Pizza in San Francisco.

If you order the pizza pie, you'll also get a digital code to watch Home Alone.
