Mr. Gorbachev, tear off this crust!

After the fall of Communism, Former leader of the USSR Mikhail Gorbachev celebrated the fall of Communism and the embrace of more Western-style Capitalism by appearing in a Pizza Hut commercial in the 1980’s. Gorbachev would preside over the failed state as it transitioned from totalitarian communism, to a more Western style of corporate oligarchy splashed with bits of random democracy every few decades.

Enjoy this blast from the past when everything was totally tubular and the only thing we “would bury you” in is extra cheese and toppings!
