With the media and advertising business more volatile than ever, it's prudent to keep one's career options open. Judging from this commercial, TDA Advertising & Design copywriter Joe Nafziger has two backup plans: pizza delivery and dirt-bike stunt jumping. That's Joe himself on the bike, starring as JoJo the Pizza Inn mascot, doing an Evel (or maybe more like a Robbie) Knievel-inspired jump of 50 pizzas in a Denton, Texas, parking lot, to celebrate a recent store opening. Why a motorcycle jump in a bobblehead costume? "Because it just seemed ridiculous," Nafziger says. The man's got a way with words. He really should write some of this stuff down. And given the news-media frenzy over the stunt (well, NBC-5 in Dallas did a brief segment), Joe should at least be able to get a job in PR someday. As for me, well, I've got my post-apocalypse job strategy thoroughly planned. You want fries with that?
