Want to generate a ton of bad press for your company and get yourself fired before the end of the day? Yes?! Then there’s a lot that can be learned from these two Domino’s Pizza employees from Conover, North Carolina.
The Domino’s workers posted a video on YouTube of themselves blowing boogers and farting on customer’s food. YouTube users were so disgusted, they not only posted thousands of comments on the video, but tracked down which Domino’s Pizza store the video was made and complained to Domino’s corporate office. As a result, the two employees in this video were fired only hours after posting the video on YouTube.
The workers claim the video was only a joke and the food wasn’t served. If you rather not take your chances, you might want to avoid this Domino’s Pizza location until further notice:
509 10th St Nw
Conover, NC 28613
Yuck! If YouTube takes the video down, you can watch it here at this alternate location online.
So what did the executives at Domino’s Pizza’s corporate headquarters think about all this extra attention they’ve been getting online? According to this video response on YouTube by Patrick Doyle, president of Domino’s USA, everyone in the Domino’s family is “sickened” by the actions of these two employees.
In the video Doyle goes on to apologize for the incident, assures customers that the Conover, N.C. restaurant where the videos were filmed is being sanitized and describes the steps his company is taking to ensure such an incident doesn’t happen again.
