    Little Caesars hails its delivery as 'best thing since sliced bread' in Super Bowl debut

    Little Caesars’ first Super Bowl commercial aims to show that getting its pizza delivered is the best thing since sliced bread. The “Pizza! Pizza!” chain’s 30-second spot centers on the CEO of Sliced Bread Inc., played by Rainn Wilson. His company and career implode after Little Caesars begins offering delivery of online orders, which customers declare “is the best thing since sliced bread.” The sliced-bread idea was one of many that agency McKinney presented when it pitched last year and it seemed like the right fit for the Super Bowl’s broad audience, says Klein. “It is a phrase that is known by every generation,” he says.
