Those who have been following the NCAA men’s basketball tournament, have been treated to an array of mind-blowing games, with some of the best college basketball teams unexpectedly going down early in the competition.
For those who don’t give two sh*ts about college basketball, you’ll still be excited to know that you can get free pizza from Little Caesars, even without a rooting interest in the tournament.
In the history of March Madness, a No. 16 seeded team had never beat a No. 1 seeded team, so Little Caesars ran a cute promo that would award everyone in the U.S. a free Lunch Combo if that unlikely scenario happened.
Well, guess what? IT ACTUALLY HAPPENED.
The 16th seeded University of Maryland, Baltimore County (Yes, that’s a real school) beat the University of Virginia in the first round of the tournament, making history.
Because of that ridiculous victory, Little Caesars has to cough up a free “Lunch Combo,” Monday, April 2, the same day as the tournament championship game.
The Hot-N-Ready Lunch Combo consists of a four slice Deep Deep Dish pizza, and a 20-ounce Pepsi product. The only catch is that you have to order the pizza between 11:30 a.m. and 1 p.m., local time. If you work, like most Americans do within that time, you’re out of luck. If you have time to go through during lunch, though, you can get yourself some free pizza, all because Virginia blew it, and busted brackets across the nation.
