The day you give birth is already a pretty big deal, but if you happen to deliver while the Super Bowl is playing, you could take home more than just your newest addition(s).
Yep, if your baby is the first baby born after kickoff, you could win free Pizza Hut pizza for a year, plus tickets to next year’s Super Bowl. Woot!
Is this a clever marketing stunt? Yes. But does it also give families who are about to nosedive into the divine chaos of new parenthood the possibility of 365 easy dinners, and future Super Bowl tickets? Also yes.
How to get your free pizza
Unfortunately, it’s not as simple as just having your baby during game time. ::shakes fist::
From the Pizza Hut site (and their team of lawyers):
“To enter, parents with a baby born during the game simply need to post a photo on Twitter of their newest arrival (including exact time of birth) tagging @PizzaHut in the post and using the hashtags #PizzaHutSpecialDelivery and #promotion to be included for consideration. (The entries so far a just precious.) No purchase necessary. For additional information and full Terms & Conditions, visit here.”
Now I’ll give you a warning. For any mom currently in the throes of birthing a child, hearing someone suggest they hold up (or speed up) so baby’s appearance coincides with kick off is a good way to get kicked. Hard. In the footballs. Even if she has an epidural.
But if the timing works out and you score a year of free pizza? Well that’s one extra saucy and unforgettable birth story.
