Do you still think about that half-court shot you missed in college that would've earned everyone a free taco? You should, because none of your classmates have forgotten, but Pizza Hut is giving you a shot at redemption with a new promo. To celebrate the 20th anniversary of their Stuffed Crust, the Hut is giving four fans the chance to win $1 million and half-price Stuffed Crust pizzas for everyone. They just need to make a half-court shot in Indianapolis. Backwards.
Pizza Hut is accepting submissions for the #StuffedCrustShot contest online now through March 29th. Three contestants will be randomly selected from that pool to fly to Indianapolis on April 5th and attempt the shot at Hinkle Fieldhouse -- while a fourth competitor will be chosen right on the spot. There's $1 million on the table for the one entrant who can actually make the basket, and if any of the four contestants score, Pizza Hut will mark their Stuffed Crust pies down to half-price nationwide on April 9th. The whole idea is that, since Pizza Hut got fans to eat pizza backwards 20 years ago when they introduced the Stuffed Crust, now they want you to make insane basketball shots backwards. It's worth a try, especially if you recently contracted the Nerdlucks to harness LeBron's powers.
