ANN ARBOR, Mich., Feb. 20 /PRNewswire/ -- The next time you hear someone say "Yo, we's got toidy minutes," there's a good chance they just ordered a Brooklyn Style Pizza (a.k.a. "The BRKLYN") from Domino's Pizza (NYSE:DPZ). The big, foldable slices of the BRKLYN bring out the old neighborhood in every bite -- but who knew they could conjure up a fake accent?

To help customers who have developed a fake Brooklyn accent as a result of ordering The BRKLYN, Domino's created 1-877-UNACCENT -- a hotline that will coach callers, teaching them how to speak normally once again. The hotline, driven by voice recognition technology, will take consumers through a range of lessons on how to say words correctly and lose their fake Brooklyn accent.
"We know it can be fun to speak with a fake accent" -- said Ken Calwell, Domino's Pizza chief marketing officer -- "and now Domino's is making it fun to get rid of one, too." After you place an order for a Brooklyn Style Pizza from Domino's, 'You Got 30 Minutes' to do whatever you'd like. If you notice a fake Brooklyn accent developing during this time, you might want to give 1- 877-UNACCENT a call."
Beginning today, through March 16, 2008, customers can get a large, one- topping Brooklyn Style Pizza for just $9.99. The BRKLYN promotion will also be coupled with the return of "2X Tuesday" -- buy any large pizza at menu price and get a second large pizza of equal or lesser value free (Tuesdays only).
