We now call him fishbulb.

They're both generic white people. *shrug*
 
2018-03-01 04:37:56 PM  
They used the mirror image version of him, the pizza slice in the image hides the goatee

Looks like a different guy with the exact same weird left eyebrow.

It looks like there was a picture on a box that kind of looked like him so he went out of his way to take a picture with him made up and staged to look like the box.  I need candid pictures of him from before the box was produced to make a determination.

Go to Sbarro's.

The ears are completely different.

Poot beer: Hairline and ear. Different.


Also the nose, and the box guy seems to have a chinstrap going on.
 
2018-03-01 04:58:31 PM  
Guy on the box looks like he's trying to shove vomit back in his mouth and failing. Can I see the guy from the article do that for comparison?

Occam's Disposable Razor: Looks like a different guy with the exact same weird left eyebrow.

Not to mention that peak on the left side of his forehead.

I would like to see the original un-posterized version of Pizza Hut's photo.

eyes are spaced different, too.
 
2018-03-01 05:00:31 PM  
It'd be easy for Pizza Hut to procure the original image that's on the box, pre-Photoshop.
 
2018-03-01 05:03:02 PM  
So, apparently he's not embarrassed to let the whole world know he eats at Pizza Hut.
 
2018-03-01 05:03:52 PM  
It's the same person.

Oh and fark Pizza Hut.
 
2018-03-01 05:14:40 PM  
Ears, hands, angles of pizza slices, nose-pizza distances...

Not even close.

common sense is an oxymoron: Ears, hands, angles of pizza slices, nose-pizza distances...

Not even close.

He's not saying that they made it from that particular photo. He posed himself like the box to show the similarity.

The ears do look different, but that could be an artifact of three-gray-level posterization (which appears to be the main processing done on the pizza box).
 
2018-03-01 05:39:31 PM  
The real story here seems to be that Pizza Hut actually wants you to eat the things they store in those boxes. This wasn't clear until they added some step by step illustrations to the packaging.
 
2018-03-01 05:44:36 PM  
Nope.
different ear.
 
2018-03-01 05:47:05 PM  
It's obvious whose face they used.

If you have to squint to see it right, no.
 
2018-03-01 06:12:06 PM  
Here's a free pizza, jackass. Now STFU.
 
2018-03-01 06:12:22 PM  
Very simple question to ask the guy: did you pose for that photo? If not, then Pizza Hut didn't use your image. Those images aren't found through some random GIS'ing. They take a whole 2+ weeks to set up, after all the contracts are signed, after the whole promotion plan has been vetted and given the green light, which might take about 6 months or more. But the creative part is probably 5 hours of set-up and photos (of about 50 models and 2,000 photos in all).

side by side it's obviously two very different looking guys.
 
2018-03-01 07:08:11 PM  
You better drop the lawsuit, before Pizza calls out for you!
 
2018-03-01 07:13:39 PM  
This is an article about which we're supposed to debate? Really?!

Ring is on the same finger .
 
2018-03-01 07:36:16 PM  
Just put on the same shirt that is on the box.  Case closed.
 
2018-03-01 07:49:37 PM  
I see a lot of mental anguish and damage to his public image. Lots. Heaps. Scads.
 
2018-03-01 08:07:20 PM  
The pic on the box kinda looks like WIl Wheaton.

Completely different pizza grip. Clearly those are two different people.

50% correct.
 
2018-03-01 11:20:58 PM  

Mcavity: Nope.
different ear.


I know how to fix that...

Pffttt, easy to see they are two different people. There is a similarity but the ears are a dead giveaway.
 
2018-03-02 07:23:47 AM  
That guy couldn't look any more average if he tried.  Not surprising if he thinks he sees himself in media all over the place.
 
2018-03-02 08:56:00 AM  
This is what the crisis actor conspiracy people should be working on.

He's gonna get blacklisted by Big Pizza.  (or is that "X-tra Large Pizza"?)
