Ninja Turtle Pizza Throwing Tank Appeared At Comic-Con

This is the Pizza Thrower (based on this old 1989 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle toy that I didn't have but my best friend did) that Pizza Hut teamed up with Paramount Pictures and Syyn Labs to build and bring to San Diego Comic-Con. It can shoot pizzas (with the pan they're baked on -- if they're even real pizzas) around 20-feet, with the power to knock over cardboard cutouts. Like Pizza Hut pizza in general, I find that entirely underwhelming. You think the Ninja Turtles would even eat Pizza Hut pizza? I mean, they're from New York -- home to some of the best pizza in the world. I bet they like those really greasy pizzas that are so thin they flap like a flag in a strong breeze. Although -- ALTHOUGH -- in the original Ninja Turtles movie Michelangelo does order a thick crust pizza from Domino's, so I don't know what to believe anymore. "Believe in product placement." I refuse, the real ninja turtles would never sell out! Back me up, Master Splinter. "Don't bother me, I'm trying to enjoy this refreshing, ice-cold Coke." You are all dead to me.

Keep going for a promo video and then one somebody took at the convention proving the tank's sadness.

Thanks to E V I L A R E S and LupusYonderboy, who throw pizzas the old fashioned way: in the middle of a food fight. Wow, I would never waste pizza like that.
