Pizzapartment. (SLYT)

I had trouble telling whether this is a joke or not. The product isn't that ridiculous (I mean, last year my mother-in-law gave us hamburger-shaped tupperware to freeze individual hamburger patties. This would be way more useful than that), and the commercial isn't either, but it's just ridiculous enough that it could be. It's like the uncanny valley of infomercial products.

I can actually use this product. Sadly when I call the 1800number its just a recording of a pizza having sex. (╯°□°)╯︵ ┻━┻

I actually want to buy this. I think many of you would too. I should create a kickstarter tonight.

This assumes that you are not compelled to devour the entire pizza every time you order one.

You know, I know this is supposed to be sort of a ha ha ridiculous thing, but damn if this won't be a perfect companion for my Presto® Pizzazz® rotary countertop pizza oven, which I use almost daily (and for things other than frozen pizzas, like quesadillas and homemade foccacia, too). I'm mortified to catch myself doing it, but sometimes I pimp that crazy pizza hairdryer like a Mom telling her grown daughter about a Massengill disposable douche. With the Pizzapartment, I could compulsively eat just half a pizza, and compulsively eat the other half later, when I wake up alone and frustrated at 3AM.

*Not for sale in states where pizza is cut into squares.

I was skeptical until I saw the color choices.

First of all, it should be pineapple, not lemon. Duh.

Second: If you find yourself putting leftover pizza in the fridge often enough to warrant the purchase of a special apparatus, maybe you should consider simply rearranging the shelves in your fridge to accommodate a pizza box.

(Or, you know, cut the box with scissors or something.)

She microwaved the pizza. SHE MICROWAVED THE PIZZA! You know what you get when you do that? Mush covered leather. Or leathery mush. I'll eat ice cold pizza before I nuke it.

"Breast cancer pink." Did they have to phrase it exactly that way?

Remember when Pizzapartment was called tupperware? Pepperidge farms remembers.

I was on the fence about whether this was fake or not, but the bad acting is what finally convinced me it wasn't a joke. Comedians would have been better actors, or would've overplayed the badness; it's hard to fake being this genuinely bad.

And as it turns out, it's real. They forgot to register the pizzapartment.com domain mentioned in the ad -- it's still available! Go! -- but "Kitchen Directions Group" exists and they really are trying to sell this.

Not compatible with Chicago-style deep dish "pizza."

In the setup shot where she is struggling with the box they forgot to cut to a shot of an exasperated face blowing bangs out of her eyes in frustration. Bonus points for streaks of flour on her face.

I could imagine buying this, this looks excellent.

Oh man, someone please create a kitchenware-based ARG. I will buy a banana slicer and make you ice if you do.

The rare good youtube comment:

Wow! This is awesome. I went searching for Pete's Apartment and came across this, and boy was I glad. Pete is such a douche but this rocks my f'ing socks off! I got it in breast cancer pink and was not disappointed (wink wink). I give this 2 slices up! Dawg.

The girl giving it as a present to the other girl was what I loved the most. I just picture them the last two humans on an apocalypse-ruined earth in the last house standing, acting out the saddest birthday party ever night, after night.

That was my favorite part -- the fact that you could see it was rectangular even in the wrapping...and the fact they were wearing sundresses...WTF

I love this thing and I love you for posting this.

Didn't Billy Wilder do something like this years ago?

I was kind of holding my breath waiting for an pansexual pink spokesthing to say "take it from me, I love you!" at the end.

(The wrapped pizzapartment was also my favorite part... ment.)
