Pizza leaves bad taste in the mouth...

New Zealand fast-food firm Hell's Pizza has come a-cropper over its latest advertising campaign, a Halloween special featuring the re-animated skeletons of Sir Edmund Hillary, Heath Ledger and the Queen Mum dancing to Michael Jackson's 'Thriller'. No stranger to controversy, the chain has pushed the barriers of good taste previously with adverts portraying Adolf Hitler doing a Nazi salute with a pizza in his hand, and by distributing condoms with its 'Lust' pizza (which were less rubbery than the bits of chicken on top).
A spokesman for the company has profusely apologised for any offence the marketing campaign may have caused, and hopes that their new effort, in which Russell Brand and Jonathan Ross repeatedly thrust pizza into the face of Andrew Sachs, will be less controversial.
