Domino's may have a reputation as a conservative company thanks to the founder's extreme religious anti-abortion views even though it was sold many many years ago. This week, the company made sure to put that talk to, well, bed.

Yes, believe it or not, this is an ad for Domino's new Sriracha pizza. The company, however, is starting to back off from the ad while still acknowledging it is legit.

"It's real," Domino's spokesman Tim McIntyre told People Magazine. "The ad was created and pitched by an agency to the independent franchise in Israel. It never 'officially' appeared anywhere, because it was ill-advised, unfunny and not brand-appropriate. In a word, it was stupid."

McIntyre admits that when he first saw it, he thought it was a joke and not a serious advertising pitch. I'm not sure that I'd say it's funny, but it's definitely one of the creepiest commercials I've seen.
