You might remember that Lions wide receiver Roy Williams hates to tip pizza delivery guys. Well, it turns out, the president of Pizza Hut has taken notice, and he's offering Williams a job.


He actually wrote Williams a full letter.

Dear Roy,

We heard that you haven't been tipping pizza delivery drivers, but recently chatted with one of our drivers and decided you need to start tipping. When a Pizza Hut pizza arrives hot and fresh, it's easy to be distracted by all the deliciousness you're about to enjoy, and our drivers certainly appreciate you taking the time to tip.

But what about all the drivers who missed being tipped in the past?

We'd like to issue you a challenge. Agree to work as a delivery driver for Pizza Hut for just one day in Detroit, and we'll forgive all your previous tipping transgressions.

Furthermore, we'll collect all the tips you receive and donate them to the World Food Programme as part of our World Hunger Relief Week, which is kicking-off October 14.

So, Roy, what do you say? There are a lot of hungry fans out there waiting.
Scott Bergren
President, Pizza Hut

We appreciate the clever bit of promotion here, particularly in Little Caesar's backyard, but we think Bergren is missing the real point here: It's all about the cash. You're gonna give money to charity? You know who you're dealing with here, right?
