for Pizza Hut in which a family are blindfolded and then are
'taken to an Italian restaurant'.

Pizza Hut's new Tuscani Restaurant-Style Pasta Selections.

uncomfortable chairs...same height to the table. These people are
Three: Tuscani Restaurant-Style Pasta selections. Hmmm...

I hate commercials...I really do.
I was in a good mood earlier - now, I'm just pissed off.
