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."
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.

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.
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.
How do you measure success? It could be a vibrant career with millions of fans and an enormous amount of money. Or it could be someone tracking your life with thousands of dominos.
Whether Taylor Swift chooses to measure her personal success in the first or the second way, YouTuber petmagnetetal gives her the dominos tribute they think she deserves.
By this point in the Internet's life, we've all seen our fair share of domino videos. This one works so well because of the theming and the on point references.
For instance, this is the final frame:
And it's a reference to this Taylor Tumblr fandom picture.
So, good job, domino stacker. Way to tribute Tay Tay.
Sriracha pizza pretty much sells itself, right? But an ad agency in Israel thought Domino’s needed some promotional material with a bit more kick.
Hence this severed tongue, dressed in leather with a ball gag in its mouth, ready for a good whipping.
“You’re going to suffer and enjoy every moment,” the text warns.
The image, from advertising agency McCann Israel, was reportedly “leaked” online even though the ad was never intended to be published and never was.
Tim McIntyre, a rep for Dominos, told People Magazine that it was pitched but never approved.
“It never ‘officially’ appeared anywhere, because it was ill-advised, unfunny and not brand-appropriate,” McIntyre said. “In a word, it was stupid.”
I bet it doesn’t seem so stupid to them now that it’s getting all this online attention.
On Twitter, Domino’s is telling people that the ad was “unauthorized.”
Germany's Sinners Domino Entertainment currently holds eight official Guinness World Records titles, including the record for most dominoes toppled in a "circle bomb."
The feat was achieved back in August of this year, but Guinness World Records recently featured the stunt in its "Spotlight" YouTube series.
It took a team of 16 people days to set them all up just to watch them all go back down in a matter of seconds.
Definitely worth it.
Domino's is now serving a pizza on a chicken base with the ambiguous name Specialty Chicken. The Specialty Chicken swaps the dough with boneless breaded chicken breasts. The four flavors on deck feature Classic Hot Buffalo, Sweet BBQ Bacon, Spicy Jalapeno-Pineapple and Crispy Bacon & Tomato. The chicken are cut up into bite sizes and topped with sauce, cheese, veggies and meats.
