When McDonald's debuted its well-intentioned "Signs" ad a few weeks ago, it was met with some praise but mostly mockery and derision.

Joining in the fun is Dallas pizza place Zoli's NY Pizza, which threw together the clever video below, featuring its own unique spin on inspired signs. It posted the parody on Facebook with the jab, "Sorry, McDonald's … we did signs before signs were cool. Nice try, tho."

A slideshow of snappy signs like "Y U No Eat Gluten" and "Please Just Call it Soccer" is set to the children's choir rendition of Fun's "Carry On," just like the infamous "Signs" ad. 

Zoli's doesn't stop at McDonald's, either.
