Last year White Castle locations had Valentine’s Day celebrations that were the talk of the town. And now Pizza Hut is jumping on the “I’m ironically taking you out on the 14th for fast food, but it’s not too ironic because this is a recession” bandwagon. But the pizza company is setting the bar even higher than cheap date night by providing engagement packages.
If you or a loved one possess the desire to make a lifelong commitment over bread sticks and greasy cheese, 2012 is the year for it. For $10,010 (plus tax), you can have an engagement story that your descendants will lovingly tell for years to come. Pizza Hut’s fancy-pants package comes complete with a ruby (like pizza sauce!) engagement ring, a red limo to escort you for the night, a personal (red, obviously) fireworks show, flowers (I’m going to stop telling you what color is involved here), a professional photographer/videographer and, most importantly, a Pizza Hut ten dollar dinner box.

Honesty time: I went to the White Castle Valentine’s Day celebration last year and had a blast with my boyfriend at the time. There’s something to be said for just being silly on a holiday that many people take too seriously. But would I say “yes” to a Pizza Hut engagement? Probably not. I’m curious to see how many people actually do!
What do you think of this marketing move? Would you accept a Pizza Hut proposal?
