So the last few months my “Rollero” video I posted with youtube for the Poor Mans Gourmet Kitchen blog was getting allot of hits out of NO WHERE…it was the least watched video I’ve had until one day I was averaging 20 to 30 plus hits a day on the Rollero video alone….nothing I know, but compared to a total of maybe 10 hits for a 3 week period it seemed pretty substantial, it didn’t go viral or anything but it attracted some kind of attention from someone that was getting it out to others or something…maybe another blogger re-posted it, I didn’t know. Then a few weeks ago the video views COMPLETELY stopped…..WHY? That was a weird little run of views out of no where that lasted for a few months to just suddenly halt.
Now let’s jump to this morning when I get the newspaper coupons in the mail today…front and center Pizza Hut is advertising their so called “P’zolo”…..seriously?? My Rollero, their P’zolo…??!!! COME ON!!!!!!
I WENT RIGHT DOWN TO PIZZA HUT AND ORDERED 2 OF THEM. LOOK AT THE PICTURES PEOPLE, LOOK AT THE DAMN PICTURES!
This isn’t a coincidence, and I’m not delusional! It looks to me like my Rollero video, http://youtu.be/neRuLjf9bwE , got studied and passed around the Pizza Hut corporation for a couple of months, because I certainly haven’t been getting mad hits from anything I’ve been doing, and the hits just so happen to stop a few weeks ago just in time for Pizza Hut to introduce their new copycat product of my Rollero, the P’zolo! Original blog post here: http://poormansgourmetkitchen.com/baked-rollero-sandwich-calzones-recipe.html
I’ve got to admit, it’s quite flattering I suppose, and I’m sure that many skeptics could dismiss this as only quite coincidental but there are a few things here you really have to consider and take into account before you pass judgment.
First, my Rollero is fantastic and the sheer genius of my recipe using pizza dough is uncanny; not to mention that it’s a fun item that people would love to try, so why wouldn’t Pizza Hut want it on their menu?
2nd, obviously my video sparked up some real interest somewhere, and it seems to me that I was getting enough hits to be passed around an entire building of cooperate employees studying the possibilities of making the Rollero one of their products.
3rd, the very name itself, P’zolo; sure, I get it, Calzone/P’Zone, Rollero/P’Zolo.
4th, Look at the damn pics and see for yourself, seriously! Pizza Hut’s P’Zolo is really my Rollero! I rest my case!
