Celebs: they’re just like us! From go-to pizza orders to getting in on the latest viral gameplay, one thing is for certain–nothing goes better together than friends, fun and pizza on a Friday night. That’s why Pizza Hut has teamed up with Twitch to kick off a new pizza-fueled gaming series, “Friday Night Bites,” exclusively on Twitch, the leading livestream entertainment service.
Some of the biggest moments on Twitch have happened when celebrities and pro gamers squad up. Pizza Hut’s Friday Night Bites, developed in collaboration with Spark Foundry, will bring together pizza-lovers, gamers, music lovers, sports aficionados, and fans of all kinds for two hours of gaming, freebies, exclusive interviews and of course, Pizza Hut pizza. After all, what goes better together than delicious pizza and fandom?
Starting tonight, November 20th – and every Friday night through December – pro gamer and popular Twitch streamer Jericho will host Friday Night Bites with a roundtable of special guests including pro gamers as well as some of your favorite celebs like T-Pain, Logic, Hannah Stocking and more!
Each squad stream will feature a trio of popular gamers and celebs playing a new popular game each week. Throughout the streams, here’s what you can expect:
- Unboxing: Cue the closeups. At the beginning of each stream, each guest will unveil their go-to Pizza Hut order.
- Challenges: The competition doesn’t end with gameplay. Guests can also compete in friendly pizza-themed challenges.
- Giveaways: Throughout the stream, the gamers won’t be the only ones winning— viewers who engage in the live chat will have a chance to receive surprises from Pizza Hut.
The first stream will take place on Friday, November 20th from 6:00 – 8:00pm ET and will feature Hannah Stocking. Perfect timing to order an Original Pan® Pizza before watching? We thought so too.
We’re adding even more fan favorites to guest star throughout the six-episode series. Tune into Friday Night Bites on Jericho’s Twitch channel at www.twitch.tv/jericho!
