Greetings to the Forum:

Many years ago, Pizza Hut (I'm pretty sure it was them) had a print ad with a modified California bear flag. The bear was shown wearing sunglasses and Bermuda shorts and holding a slice of pizza. As I recall, the ad copy read "Pizza by Californians for Californians".

I thought I had saved this ad, but cannot now find it. I also can't seem to find it on the internet. Does anyone know where I can download a copy of this ad with good resolution?

Thanks,

I Googled "bear eating a pizza" and came up with all sorts of images, ads, and weird stuff.
This is probably not the ad from your description, but it says California and shows pizza and a bear :mrgreen:
Pizza Hut was born in Wichita, KS

I suspect this might be what you're looking for. Someone on eBay has the image on a T-shirt.

I like the Pizza California one better, even if it wasn't what was sought.

Greetings to Jim and the Forum:

That's the bear all right, but the ad I am looking for has him on the California state flag, on all fours, except for one paw holding the pizza. The reason I am looking for that one is that I want to send it down South to some friends and get them to agitate for it to be adopted as the official state flag of California. :D

Regards,

I think spell check or auto-complete struck again. I think advocate was the intended word.

If this was a serious thing they'd advocate. But a commercial drawing will never be part of a flag, so "agitate" seems fitting. Lots of noise, but never a chance.

Look for a Round Table ad maybe, that is a California pizza chain.

Pretty sure this is all part of a sort of practical joke, not a serious move to replace the CA flag.
