ATLANTA – The blimp crash in New York City last week knocked the air out of Pizza Hut’s Big Foot promotion.
The blimp, last seen deflated and draped over a Hell’s Kitchen apartment house where it descended, was supposed to have continued on its 19-city tour, but though the crew of the blimp escaped with only minor injuries, the blimp-ride part of the promotion did not survive.
New York was the 10th stop in the tour, which promoted the pizza delivery company’s new extra-large pizza.
