LeBron James, AKA the basketball great and Blaze Pizza owner (they don't call him the King for nothing), recently took to the streets of Cleveland to pass out free slices of the chain's new 14-inch pies.
In the one-minute clip posted to Twitter on Monday, LeBron—or should I say Ron—shocked fans by greeting them with a stack of 'za boxes. Posing as his delivery guy alter ego with a customized hat and all, the Lakers star stopped pedestrians to pass out entire pizzas—and snap selfies, naturally. Everyone freaked TF out except for the nonchalant guy who straight up ignored him.
"Hey, what's going on man, I'm Ron," he said, before launching into a whole spiel: "Blaze right now is offering a large sharable pizza here with real ingredients. Not frozen, none of that frozen crust, aight. I want to show you some beautiful, unique toppings that we have—artichoke, arugula."
Obviously, real fans weren't buying the whole Ron shtick; c'mon, all he was wearing to disguise himself was a hat. That said, he refused to break character. "No, I'm Ron. I don't know who LeBron is," he said after a fan thanked him by his real name.
LeBron reposted the ad to Twitter, writing, "What can I say?! Ron's a man of the people. We got that new LARGE @BlazePizza coming in."
According to a rep for the brand, the 14-inch pizzas are now available as build-your-own and as one of Blaze's signature 'za's like the meat eater, green strip, veg out, or BBQ chicken. Wonder what our dude LeBron's order of choice is?
