Backwards Half Court Shot Contest

I can think of a lot of things that I would do for a million dollars. When it comes to doing stupid things for money, as long as it isn’t illegal, immoral, or dangerous (which is a relative term, according to my mother)…let’s just say a million dollars is a lot of money.

To celebrate a certain season of basketball insanity, Pizza Hut is making it easy for a few lucky winners to try for a million dollars. There was no laying your life on the line involved: just sink your shot from half court. Facing backwards.

To celebrate the 20th anniversary of Stuffed Crust Pizza, along with the college basketball tournament, four fans will have the chance to win $1 million. But first, they have to sink a half-court shot, facing backwards. Until March 29th, brave, aspiring basketball/pizza aficionados can enter to win one of three spots to attempt the shot. The fourth contestant will be chosen on the spot when the contest takes place on April 5th at Hinkle Fieldhouse in Indianapolis. If any of the four contestants make the shot, not only will they win the big bucks, but Pizza Hut will mark down Stuffed Crust pies to half price nationwide on April 9.

This competition continues the celebration of the 20th anniversary of Stuffed Crust, with a throwback deal going on right now for half price stuffed crust. There are some great commercials running right now in the US market, featuring the NBA legend David Robinson, who appeared in the original ads for stuffed crust in 1995, and legendary NBA anchorman Dick Vitale. Watch the original TV spot from 1995 below!
